Photographs to Represent an Academy

ContactSheet-001 ContactSheet-002 ContactSheet-003

The Academy that kindly lets me help with their GCSE and A level Photography students asked me to take a set of photos that could be used as a slide show backdrop for prize giving day and that represented the various departments in the school. Art and photography is not represented as the Head of Art has plenty of her own photographs.

I spent a very enjoyable hour wandering around the Academy selecting subjects. Some of the results are included in the contact sheets shown above. All of the photos were taken with a 105mm prime lens because the Head of Art wanted fairly abstract designs and they were all lit with a single off-camara speed gun with a small cold-shoe soft box attached to diffuse the light.

A very useful exercise to undertake whilst building to assignment 4.
