The sun shone, the participants checked their cameras and we were ready for a great afternoon of fun photography.
A mixed group of children from 10-16 threw themselves into the activities and, with reference to the worksheets, produced some fantastic shots. They climbed walls, lay on the ground, knelt down, peered through railings, hid in hedges and jumped off rocks!
The results were impressive – all agreed they had learnt some new skills and used their imaginations to the max. Their images will be published later today but, meanwhile, here is a record of our fantastic afternoon.
It was our final session at Grange Park Children’s Centre and this session always ends up being a favourite as it is a dressing up session and styling. Here is Jill being sneakily snapped by Bella.
There was true magic in the air as Bella photographed herself, although I think her mum, Jayne may of been assisting.
There was smoke and some awesome efforts at make up and costume. I love Georgia and Bella’s magical zombie make up. You can tell it is Autumn as there are leaves everywhere.
I think the first image looks like we could be in band: What could we be called? The Whipper Snappy Dressers? Bella’s imagination carried her to a place where she was possibly in a accident and the car was to blame!! – very filmic. Jill was photographed a lot this last week and her purple hair is so vibrant and eye catching, she makes a awesome model.
Loads of props were incorporated for this session. Lots of leaping and appropriation of other items, hiding behind and on things and plenty of dressing up.
Thanks Bella, you are soooooooooooooo much more approachable and beautiful then this image. However your make up skills are super awesome!!!
As the only boy in this group, Rio had any number of willing subjects to photograph. This week was dressing up and disguise week, so the girls went to town….
I love the different looks that Grace has adopted.
They say every picture tells a story, and this one certainly does…….Rio captured Bella and Georgia, the two self styled zombies, disappearing over the road, back towards the building. It looks a bit desolate – but that suited the zombies, who were planning a staged car accident…..
Look carefully for the hidden figures…..
Great shots through the wire gates, Rio, well done!
Georgia turned into a weird and wonderful zombie creature this week…… a great finish to our three week workshop. She and Bella got into some strange and very uncomfortable looking positions….. NB the car was stationary 🙂
Some interesting angles and some great crops, well done Georgia!
