Kids learn documenting nature through photography
Photography plays a critical role in our life. Be it documenting our life or understanding nature or even forensic sciences. This workshop will focus on empowering the kids on the photography techniques and the approach for nature photography. The workshop will be held in the beautiful Botanical Garden of TNAU. The rich flora and fauna in the venue and the natural environment will help the kids embrace and learn about nature through photography.
The kids will also be learning ethics and discipline with which they should approach fellow living beings. For example, how do I take photos of a butterfly without disturbing it? How do I document the Ant’s movement without disturbing its little Ant hill?
Note: Kids need to bring their own digital camera (preferably with P-A-S-M modes)
- Composition technique
- Different modes in a camera
