Images from the 2017 Summer Teen Camps
Art Intersection is proud to present a selection of artwork made by young photographers during our 2017 summer teen camps including Exploring Photography Sessions 1 and 2 and Darkroom Photography for Teens.
Our Exploring Photography students tackled both darkroom and digital photography: they shot black and white film with SLR cameras and processed it themselves, took digital pictures, and made both darkroom and digital prints of their images. Along the way, they also experimented with photograms and lumen prints. These students learned new things every day and had fun trying out these varied techniques.
Our Darkroom Photography students shot 35mm, 120mm, and 4×5″ film, mastering multiple cameras and formats at once while working on their own self-defined artistic project. In addition to processing all that film, they utilized advanced darkroom techniques such as split-filter printing to make high-quality prints for their portfolio. These students got to experiment with professional materials while spending lots of quality time in the darkroom refining their craft.
Though our camps this summer were only 4 days long each, the amount of work our students accomplished and the level of growth shown was incredible. This exhibition is the best of the best, and only a fraction of all the wonderful photographs our students made.
We are so proud of the work our 2017 teen camp students created!
