Age group: 11-15 years; 12 sessions; 30 students
A group of children from Samvad got an opportunity to participate in a photography workshop. These 12-session inputs created and facilitated by Vidu Chandan and co-facilitated by Amit Ghoshal, enabled underprivileged children to use old point & shoot digital cameras to look at their surroundings with a different perspective. Friends of Aura and MasterCard employees donated digital cameras for the use of this project. Volunteers from MasterCard also participated during the training sessions.
I have never held a camera in my hand, so this was a new experience for me. Additionally, I discovered specific techniques about taking pictures.
