In day 2 of our half term Fun With Photography course, with photographic artist Marysa Dowling we looked at manipulating images by hand, playing with scale and composition.
To see day one’s activities click here.
We looked at some interesting archive images, sourced from the internet and imagined ourselves within the scene.
We drew some quick sketches of how we would like to change the image and add ourselves.
We then made more props to use in a photograph. I was amazed at how inventive the children were with just a few basic materials.
We used our props to photograph ourselves in our very own studio.
We printed the images then played with scale using the ‘selphy printer’ and the photocopier.
The younger children were also busy thinking about character and pose. These activities were developed by Sabrina Smith-Noble with inspiration from Anna Linch’s resource for Access Art Putting You in the Picture
They then visited the studio with the older children and worked with them to develop their character further. The older children took great pleasure in guiding their apprentices and sharing their new photography skills.
Helping them with costume choices…
They did a good job I think…some future photographers in our midst.
They also looked at sequencing a series of images…
and developing their story, by photographing a model in different scenario’s
I think our parents were pleased!
Hope to see some of you back for our Easter Holiday Course.
