Now that a digital camera is so accessible to all our pupils, usually in the form of their mobile phone, we work hard to inspire them to use their camera creatively.
A number of pupils complete their skill for DoE in photography, a few pupils shoot imagery to supply our school publications and we also run it as a Year 9 Activity.
Pupils work on the skills required for high quality digital photography from capturing the image through to digital work flow. We focus on a range of disciplines including: capturing motion; textural forms; macro in nature; landscape photography; candid portraits. Most important of all, we teach them to consider the importance of both composition and light.
Examples of their achievements are below.
