July 28 - August 8, 2014 TWO-WEEK CAMP**
1pm - 4pm
Grades 9-12
$425 / Members

includes darkroom materials 

Why are so many photographers reverting to analog, while others continue to experiment with digital processes? See for yourself in this unique camp that explores both film and digital photography through inspired activities and shooting assignments. The first week will include 3 days of darkroom work as Dave Eichinger, Photography Department Head and Lead Professor at City College, walks students through the process of developing a roll of film and making their own prints under the red lights. The second week, led by professional photographer Bernadette Unis-Johnston, students will dive into the artistic side of digital photography and mixed media processes. 

*Students are encouraged to bring both a digital camera with manual settings and a film camera, but are not required to do so to participate in the camp. Students who do not have their own cameras will be able to borrow digital cameras and film Holgas/Dianas from MOPA.

**Campers will be making a 20 minute walk down to the City College darkroom and back on T, W, and Th of Week 1.

The story behind the making of THE BAY LIGHTS—a project whose very “impossibility made it possible”—reveals the drama and the daring of artist Leo Villareal and a small team of visionaries who battle seemingly impossible challenges to turn a dream of creating the world’s largest LED light sculpture into a glimmering reality.

Admission: $15

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. 

In partnership with the San Diego Design Film Festival
