High Rocks hosts Photography Camps at The Hub this summer

The Hub student café hosted a Photography Camp the week of June 19-23. The camp was led by High Rocks’ AmeriCorps member Brennan Smith.

Each day students focused on a different project that expanded their understanding of the medium of photography. Projects included Street Photography, Capture the Light and Abstract Images. The students were able to travel to the Greenbrier Resort, Unique Boutique and the Greenbrier County Public Library in search for the perfect subject matter. Each day finished with an assessment of their work so that they could learn the concepts behind taking a quality photograph, such as the rule of thirds and depth of field. The students were able to work with both analog and digital cameras. The week finished with a Photography Exhibit of the students’ work at The Hub which was open to the community. The students also received a professional portfolio with their favorite photographs from the week so that they could enjoy them long after camp ended.

For those who missed out, the Hub will host a second week of Photography Camp from July 31 to Aug. 4. Camp will take place from noon to 4 p.m. each day and will be open to any youth age 12 and up. All supplies, including cameras, will be provided. Please contact The Hub at 304-647-4994 for more details. The public is invited to stop by The Hub on Aug. 4 between 6 and 8 p.m. to see our next exhibit!
