Cure JM Foundation 2016 Annual Conference Recap

Teen Session & Photography Workshop

JM Young Adult Taking a PhotoOver 50 teens and tweens came together at the Conference in St. Pete Beach, and many participated in the one-day Teen Photography Workshop. Professional Photographer and Cure JM mom Suzy Clement led the very popular, hands-on workshop. While parents and grandparents attended educational sessions, Cure JM teens, tweens and siblings socialized while learning about photography.

JM Young Adult Learning about PhotographyEach student learned the basics of what makes a good photograph including shutter speed, aperture and lenses. They also learned how to “see” as a professional photographer does, exploring lighting, composition and perspective. With these tools, the teens explored how photographs can express feelings as well as capturing the beauty all around us.
