Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch Photography Club

img_3855Cal Farley’s Photography Club is a hands on learning environment for our residents who have a genuine interest in all areas of photography. The boys and girls meet each week as a group. While they love taking pictures they also learn about the science of photography such as how light from the sun and artificial light have the biggest impact on their photos. They enjoy learning how cameras work and how to use them correctly. Several of the residents also excel in videography. One residents has his own YouTube™ channel showcasing his stop-animation videos.   Each resident has the opportunity to explore his or her own interest in photography and encouraged to develop a personal style of photography.
