The Big Shot Camera Kit lets you build your own digital camera, and learn about the parts and how they work to create a photograph. Using your camera, you’ll learn about shot composition and basic design principles to create a portfolio website of your photographs.

On the final day, there will be an in-house show of all student portfolios. Students take their camera home to continue to use and further develop their creative observational skills through photography.


  • See how photography blends technology, art, and science
  • Understand the parts of a camera and how they work together to create an image
  • Apply knowledge of composition and design concepts to photography
