Redland Green School Enrichment - Term 2

 

Over the course of this year, I have been working with my school and documenting the new "enrichment scheme" that has been put into place for students". My periods for shooting are split into 6 sections for each term and so far I have shot 2.

It has been really interesting and fun working with and around the school, students and staff challenging myself to capture creative and story telling images.

- The Events and Activities - 

RGS did an amazing job in creating a huge range of activities which I was lucky enough to be able to shoot. 

Golden Oldies -

Golden Oldies is an activity where a group of students go to a local retirement and spend time with some of the residents. It was really nice to spend time with people who had such amazing stories and were very interested in what I was doing! The lighting where I was shooting was even and soft meaning that my only main focus was on creating images that would show the students talking and having fun with the residents.

- Bouldering

Bouldering is one of the most active activities that students are offered with. We would go down to Bristol Clip n Climb and the Students would begin climbing according to their different strengths and abilities. Whilst shooting, it was interesting to find different angles and vantage points from where I would be able to get some creative shots.

- Quick Tip -

When shooting climbing, get all the way above your subject  and shoot down on them. This can really help you to get close to your subject and show focus. 

I had never shot climbing before and I definitely learnt a lot from shooting this activity. The lighting wasn't great and shooting above and down a wall is definitely an angle that I'd never thought about before but worked really well.
