The Outback Experience presents the perfect opportunity for budding young photography enthusiasts to master the art and science of advanced digital photography.
We will be covering many advanced concepts such as light painting, star-trails, time-lapse photography and bird & wildlife photography.
We at The Outback believe that every child has their own unique creative bent and we will help your child tap and develop their creativity and talent for photography through this fun-filled overnight workshop.
The workshop is led by award-winning wildlife photographer Phillip Ross who is exceptional with children and will ensure a fun, educational, interactive and creative time. Phillip will also ensure that there is a lot of individualized attention and will address all of your child's doubts and questions.
This overnight workshop is spread over two days and set in surroundings straight out of a storybook. The workshop will include not only theory-based learning but a lot of practical learning too.
Enroll your child today for a hands-on learning experience about the wonderful art of painting with light.
Arrive at the pickup point in Bangalore at 8 a.m, and once all participants have assembled, well depart in pre-arranged transport for the hour-long journey to The Outback Farm and Homestay in Bannerghatta. Your child's best classroom ever, we guarantee!
On reaching the gorgeous campsite, all participants will be welcomed with a refreshing drink and allowed to check-in.
After a brief introduction and ice-breaking session, the workshop will officially commence. Phillip will hold a session introducing digital photography to help your child understand basics such as advanced photography concepts, as well as refresh each participant's knowledge on basic camera settings.
Once we have a good grasp of the basics, Phillip will introduce Time Lapse Photography. We learn how to take some amazing time-lapses of several scenarios, and Phillip will also teach the participants how to stitch the time lapses with software. Once we finish the session on time-lapse, we give in to the smells from the kitchen and gorge on a delicious lunch.
After lunch, Phillip will now introduce panning and zoom-bursts. These two cool techniques will bring out the creativity in your child's imagery and lead them past those run of the mill images that they were earlier used to.
It's now time to learn and master landscape photography! Phillip will lead the children on a beautiful trek to a nearby hill to practice what they've learned so far, and also master the art of landscape photography. The top of the hill is a perfect place to learn and master exposure compensation and metering. If we are very lucky, we could come across some wildlife, too.
Well then return to the campsite and relax by the lake while enjoying a snack and a hot beverage.
After freshening up, your child will be taught how to master photographing in the dark with a fun session on low-light and night photography. Your child will love learning about light painting using the bulb mode, and they will also learn about star-trail photography.
Over a scrumptious dinner, we will celebrate the fact that your child can now look through the viewfinder of their camera with considerably more experience than before.
Just before bedtime, well gather around the campfire and Phillip will show your child some of his finest images and talk to them about composition, thus ending a fun-filled day of learning about advanced photography concepts.
We awake to the sweet calls of the birds found within the campsite andwalk out of our rooms to watch the mist rising over the lake and the sun rays lighting up the surrounding forests.
It's back to photography! Phillip will first bring everyone up to speed by summarizing the previous day's lessons before introducing the wonderful world of Bird Photography. Each participant is assured of many stunning images of the various species of birds that visit the birdbath at the bird hide. Phillip will provide each participant with tips and insights on how to capture the perfect shot.
After a hearty breakfast, its time for a topic that everyone finds quite fascinating creative nature photography & mastering depth of field. Your child will learn about the various aspects that influence the depth of the field and learn how to create images with a shallow or deep depth of field.
This immersive workshop will end with a fun photography game and competition.
Everyone doubts will be cleared with a question-and-answer session and then well check out and leave in pre-arranged transport and return to the city with enough knowledge to start making some amazing imagery.
