At our after school photography club this week, the children have been taking Black and White photographs.

The theme this week was all about black and white photographs. Students were taught where to find the black and white setting on their camera and how to use it effectively. Black and white photographs introduce more emotion into the photograph, making them more dramatic or simple. We talked about light and dark (contrast) and how the photos made them feel. This encourages the children to think differently and not just snap away at anything they see!

To inspire the students, we showed them images by famous photographers Ferdinando Scianna, Philippe Halsman & Raymond Depardon.
