Our sixth form photography students experienced the day in Europe’s former City of Culture.
Students embarked upon visits to the City’s prime locations to include, the Albert Dock, Tate Gallery the Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedral.
Students had the unique opportunity to conduct a series of photographic shoots on location in line with personalised themes
Photography students created work based on themes such as, “Contrasts”, “Architectural Elements,” “Textures within the Urban Environment” and “Pattern and Line.”
Students gained essential technical experience in a range of lighting and weather conditions which can be applied to future practical work.
Well done to our students who worked responsibly and collaboratively throughout the day despite the challenging weather conditions. A special thanks to Mr Hardy who organised and ensured a safe trip.
