Photography Courses for Kids and Teens
Brooklands Automotive Museum
Course: Capturing Action (Special event)
Date: Sunday 19th May 2019
Time: 10.30 – 13.00
Fee: £45 (Optional additional DSLR hire £10)
Brooklands is hosting one of their fantastic Classic Car Breakfast events, which means there will be amazing cars and motorcycles driving on the track! If your child loves cars, action and speed –we will teach them how to capture it. The course will be focused on understanding shutter speeds, both fast and slow. We will use the super fast speeds to capture the cars in sharp focus, and then use slow shutter speeds to blur & pan the cars, making wonderful artistic images. We will look at how to frame and compose the vehicles in the camera frame, discussing various composition ideas. This will help our students look for creative ways to make the images stand out, and give them a fun portfolio of images at the end of the course.
Snacks and drinks are provided, and the teens are also welcome to bring their own.
The Birthplace of British Motorsport and Aviation. Home of Concorde
BROOKLANDS – the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed at Weybridge, Surrey in 1907 – was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century.
The Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalleled collection of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and the only Concorde with public access in South East England.
