INSET Day Photography at Ashton House School, Isleworth. Return Home
The beauty of creative activities is that they can continue even when the weather is not perfect for stepping outdoors. We all have abundant things around our own homes or classrooms that can be used to create interesting images, even abstracts.
Interacting with others and bouncing off ideas increase confidence. It also raises awareness of ourselves and our surroundings. Over a time, this can become a habit that can help in our ability to concentrate.

Project "See the Light"
This was a project youngsters recently worked on.
The first part of the session was to get the kids to observe carefully the still-life photographs and paintings by various artists to understand the role of light in creating pictures.
Props were then laid out on the table but kids had to figure out themselves how to arrange the items, how to place them in a way where they can make use of the available light and how to photograph them. It was so rewarding to see them all come up with their ideas and experiment. They were also shown how filters and panoramic mode can be used to create a different kind of look.
Kids were tasked with creating a series as a task at home. They sent me their work. The winning series is posted on the page.
Throughout the session, the kids were supported and taught the technical aspects of the camera. They were helped but were encouraged to try on their own first.
These are some examples of what they have been doing since. :)
