Michael Caterina, the instructor of the photography course Shoot Like a Pro, said he is more than excited to be here at MIPA camp this year. Traveling from Princeton, IN on his first vacation all summer, Caterina said he has been pumped to teach and open young photographers’ eyes to the fine art of photography.
The students will learn advanced photography techniques and exposure basics and then move into more advanced forms in being creative, with the proper ways to work in the field.
“It’s difficult getting a great shot; I’ve learned that over the years,” Caterina said.
On July 30, the photographers will go to the Ingham County Fair and pick out their assignments randomly from a hat, varying from covering 4-H events to the motocross event.
“I want to make kids better photographers,” Catarina said. “I want them not only to shoot like a pro but act like a pro.”
Darrell Davison, a student in Caterina’s class, said he is excited and curious to see what the trip will offer him.
“I don’t know what to expect, but I am glad about that. It gives me a chance to practice for a real-world experience,” he said.
