Youth Workshop: Pictures Within Pictures
Suitable for ages 12-15
In this workshop, led by Sharp Shots, participants will learn about street photography and how they can work within the camera’s frame to create a picture within a picture.
Starting by looking at the work of photographers such as Gary Stochl, Vivien Mayer and Gilles Peress, students will then head out to shoot in the streets of Soho. Using puddles, reflections and posters, participants will experiment with different ways to incorporate layers in their own photographs, and will finish the day with a series of their own collage-like images.
Students will learn how to use depth of field and shutter speed to enrich the visual layers in their photographs. They will also learn how to set their camera’s black and white setting, and will experiment with shooting in black and white to add to their image’s layers.
£50 / Limited Bursary places
[Please note: participants will need to bring a camera to use in this session. A limited number of DSLR cameras will be available to hire for £10. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org after booking if you wish to hire a camera]
