Portffolio: Artist-led masterclass for 14-18 yr olds
10:30am - 3:30pm
Using Photography as a creative tool is often challenging. Understanding which ISO, aperture or lens to use when capturing the perfect image can be very confusing. This experimental workshop uses the process of breakings things to achieve a greater understanding of photographic processes. A collection of vintage and modern cameras will be dismantled while learning how they worked. The parts will then be used to build a selection of brand-new experimental cameras. The final part of the session will be learning to use your Frankenstein camera, understanding its limitations and working out how to get the best of out your new photography tool.
