Stimulate your creativity

Why not try the ‘Photography Colour Challenge’ … This is a great starter activity with the young people.  Armed with cameras, take a walk around the surrounding area and get the young people to choose a specific colour – then only shoot objects of that colour. By the end of the session, you’ll be surprised how that colour jumps out at you!  Image

When finished why not take the best images and assemble them into a collage or mosaic.

Vivian Maier: Who Took Nanny’s Pictures?

An inspiring woman … if you have time I recommend watching a documentary on her (from iplayer see link below)Image…_Summer_2013_Vivian_Maier_Who_Took_Nannys_Pictures/#

The incredible story of a mysterious nanny who died in 2009 leaving behind a secret hoard – thousands of stunning photographs. Never seen in her lifetime, they were found by chance in a Chicago storage locker and auctioned off cheaply.

Now Vivian Maier has gone viral and her magical pictures sell for thousands of dollars. Vivian was a tough street photographer, a secret poet of suburbia. In life she was a recluse, a hoarder, spinning tall tales about her French roots. Presented by Alan Yentob, the film includes stories from those who knew her and those who revealed her astonishing work.
