Elements Photography Exhibition

Light, landscapes and letters were a few of the themed photos on show at the Elements Photography Exhibition on Thursday 28th January 2016.

The exhibition showcased the best work from last semesters Elements’ photographers, with each choosing their five best photos.  The course starts with; explanations on how to frame a subject, what makes a good photo and how to get the best from a camera. Lots of trips are planned so students can practice taking photos of; street scenes, landscapes, wildlife and people. In specialist weeks students experiment with light and colour and at Halloween they dressed-up for portrait shots.

Ian Weathington said; “My favorite type of photography is wildlife, because animals are always changing and moving – it is very dynamic, you have to be quite lucky to get a good shot.”

“I have learnt a lot doing Elements photography but the most important thing I have learnt is that to get great shots you need to be unique, try different things and look for different angles.”

Photography Elements teacher Jo Burgon said; “I’ve been very impressed with the work the students have produced this semester. They’ve tried out lots of different types of photography in the different workshops and have really developed their creative and technical skills. The images they all captured over the course was of such high quality, it was tough selecting the best ones for the exhibition.”
