In addition to learning more about Senegalese culture through dance and interviewing Senegalese artists, our teens have also been learning how to film, photograph, and shoot b roll scenes with a HD DSLR camera. Before this project started many of our teens had very little to no experience using HD DSLR cameras, but after several months of hands on practice they have gotten well accustomed to operating the camera independently. The majority of the images that will be featured in the exhibit were captured by our NSBD teens!
Here is what some of our teens had to say about their experience using the HD DSLR camera:
While building the exhibit I learned a lot of vocational skills like camera techniques, interviewing skills, b roll, and photography. Learning these skills has helped me a lot in my media class at school. Carliste B.
I really like using the camera and doing interviews. It’s really fun. Sheba B.
I am a lot more comfortable using the camera now. Senee R.
