This week at our after school photography clubs our students have been freezing movement!

Freezing movement is a fun photography skill to learn. At our after school photography clubs in Surrey we use Nikon Coolpix W100 cameras. These cameras have a setting called ‘Take a series of pictures’. (However, if you don’t have this camera then the setting may also be called a fast shutter speed, action or burst setting.) The setting uses a fast shutter speed to capture lots of photographs in quick succession, allowing our students to freeze the perfect moment! There was hair flicking, jumping, running, splashing, cartwheels and more! To inspire our students photographs, we like to show them photos taken by famous photographers. This week was the work of Chris Steele Perkins & Ferdinando Scianna.

We had one rainy day which meant we needed to find a rainy day photography idea that suited being both inside and outside (so that we can run between the two!). So the theme was ‘Photographic challenges’. Every few minutes we blew a whistle and gave the students a new challenge to photograph. They love this fast moving challenge!
