Kid's Photo CoursesSharp Shots Children's Photography Workshops 

"You don’t take a photograph, you make it" Ansel Adams

New for 2016! Kids photography experts Sharp Shots are running exclusive workshops for budding photographers so they can hone their travel photography skills at the Family Travel Show. From understanding how the camera works to snapping moving wildlife and thoughtful compositions showcasing dazzling landscapes, these sessions are sure to educate and inspire the next generation of travellers to capture and explore the world.

Sessions will be run in two age groups, 8-11 years old and 12 years plus. Each session will be 45 minutes and will cover the following topics:

Children Aged 8-11 Young travel photographers will learn how a camera takes a photograph, what the clickety-click means and how the lens and light affects their photos, plus tips on which automatic settings to use on holiday to get the best images. There will be advice for capturing a breathtaking landscape like Ansel Adams, how to take an underwater picture looking at the work of Seth Casteel, ways to engage your family for fun, relaxed group shots and how to capture wild animals like the pros at National Geographic.

Children Aged 12+ Teens will demystify how a camera takes a photograph, introducing them to aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Building on their camera knowledge, they will be led into thinking more about their photographic composition and how to make their images POP! Famous photographs such as Ansel Adam’s breathtaking landscapes and Henri Cartier-Bresson’s “decisive moment” will be used to inspire and create fun, reportage style travel images worthy of a glossy mag.
