Month: June 2015
I enjoy the playfulness and constant motion of natural light as it dances around a subject. Whether it is the neighborhood children splashing through one of Portland’s puddles or the simple dance of clothes drying on a line, I am not only drawn to this rhythm in nature but my camera seeks it like a magnet!
Several years ago, I was asked to teach a photography class to students at a school in Honduras. I returned for a couple of years. That opportunity led me to create a week long experience for students in Portland, known as PhotoCamp PDX.
Judi Davis’ PhotoCamp PDX 2015 that is coming up the week of July 20-25th is now FULL!
Looks like a creative and fun time will be had by all.
History and Camp Beginnings
Several years ago, I was asked to teach a photography class to students in a school in Honduras. I returned to teach for a couple of years. It was a wonderful experience which provided me the opportunity to create a week long camp for students in Portland known as PhotoCamp PDX.
During the week long camp, students learn photography basics; camera operation, composing a photograph, printing images, and matting to frame and show.
The camp concludes with a Gallery Walk to celebrate their success with family and friends. The talented photographers have displayed their work at Blue Kangaroo, and you’ll find their cards at Portland Homestead Supply.
