Photography Academic Enrichment

This term saw the start of the Photograph Club being offered as part of the School’s Academic Enrichment program. Pupils have been learning technical photographic terminology and analyzing the work of famous photographers.

One of the tasks completed involved the pupil’s recreating Henri Cartier-Bresson’s celebrated ‘Decisive Moment’ photographs. The Pupil’s had to act as Model, Director and Photographer in order to stage these instantaneous set-ups. I am sure you will agree that they added their own spin to this project and created new and original photographs that they can be very proud of.

I look forward to working with the Photography Club this year and establishing a working darkroom and black and white film processing area. This promises to be a very exciting venture.
