Picture perfect!

Have you ever puzzled over the purpose of all those dials and symbols on your camera? Well, some Year 5 pupils attended a Rushmoreable workshop where they learnt all about shutter speeds, F stops and depths of field.

Under the expert guidance of Debbie, a professional photographer, pupils used their new understanding of a camera to shoot illustrations for a picture book. Paying close attention to the story entitled, Generosity, plasticine  figures were modelled and placed on a  backdrop. Every scene was then photographed very carefully to produce a portfolio of pictures that will be incorporated in an infant storybook. The workshop was a real insight into the technical and very creative side of photography.
