Our new photography students have been exploring the work of Karl Blossfeldt and responding to it in their own way. Heres a collage of them curating their work in their sketchbooks. Looking amazing so far!
Today in AS Photography, we have been exploring the traditional dark room method of Cliché verre.
Cliché verre is a combination of painting and or drawing, with photography. In brief, it is a method of either etching, painting or drawing on a transparent surface, such as glass, thin paper or film and printing the resulting image on a light sensitive paper in a photographic darkroom.
Fantastic shot by GCSE student, Maisy. The Kiwi fruit reacts with UV light, creating intense and vibrant colours.
Skilful and creative collages representing the juxtaposition between man and nature by overlaying black and white and colour photography. By Lily Povey (A Level Photography)
A great team effort from this years new GCSE Photography students, Joe & George. We found a dark tunnel in the nearby village of Shrewley and we set up our cameras and tripods to experiment with long exposure light painting. We had lots of fun using a real lightsaber, sparklers and torches.
Incredibly detailed, embroidered landscape photographs by one of our AS Level Photography students, K.T.
