Idealita Ismanto, an experienced photography mentor, will lead a one-day workshop for children. This program invites participants aged 8-15 who are curious about photography to take up a professional camera and look around them to create a story that resonates with them.

Participants will learn the technicalities of a camera, learn indoor photography by creating a simple studio setup, as well as making the most of available light to take photos outdoors. The goal is to enable the participants to create their own narrative using photography. To conclude the workshop, final projects will be presented as part of the festival’s Projection Night.
