Welcome to In Focus

Welcome to our camp. This camp is not about the technical abilities of the cameras but instead we will focus on the creativity of the photographer. Well learn to use the camera and various editing tools to influence the message we provide observers of our photos. To keep parents/guardians up to date on what we are doing, please check out of camp website: http://infocusatleap.weebly.com/ The website will be a resource for our work and campers can go there to review what happened during the day. Here are our plans for the week:
This schedule is subject to change and is dependent upon the weather conditions; this is because, as often as possible, we would like to go outside to take advantage of the natural light for our photos. As the weather forecast develops over the week we may re-organize our plans to take maximum advantage of the weather situation. Monday - Day 1 8:30 - 1ST BREAK -Session 1 = Photo Talk (What is photography? Who takes photos? Why do people take photos? What is a good photo? The role of light and the steady shot.

Instructor: My name is Ken Whytock. Ive been an educator with the Waterloo Region District School Board for 22 years, and although my primary focus has been teaching English, Ive taught Media Studies and/or Yearbook as well for most of those years. Im an amateur photographer who simply wants to impart upon your son or daughter the unlimited possibilities of digital photography. I would encourage you to talk positively about the work your camper does each day. Ask to see the best 5 or 10 photos (this will teach them evaluation skills) and ask them what they were hoping to achieve with each photo (this will teach them self-analysis skills). Here are three important reminders so that camp runs smoothly:

1. Make sure the camera is fully charged for each day of camp (either have an extra set of batteries or charge the lithium battery overnight). 2. Provide the card reader or necessary cable so the pictures on the camera can be downloaded onto a laptop for editing (laptop photo editing starts on Tuesday). 3. Return the permission form promptly so your camper can take part in out photo tour of Waterloo Park.
I hope your son or daughter has a fantastic experience this week. If you have any concerns, questions, or observations I can be reached by email at: kenwhytock@gmail.com
