Capturing Spring on our National Maritime Museum Photography Course!
This Easter we were back at the National Maritime Museum to photograph everything Spring! The course was for 8-13 year olds, plus a parent or adult, so it was a really family based course. Our National Maritime Museum Photography Course covered topics from aperture, to shutter speed and composition. Taking in all that Greenwich has to offer.
We started by using the flower or aperture setting to blur the backgrounds of colourful flowers or leaves. Then the landscape setting to capture big landscapes. We were so lucky with the venue, as it has so much offer in terms of pretty flowers, stunning landscapes and space to run around with amazing backdrops!
Both kids and adults really got in to this task. Despite the damp weather, they persevered and produced some amazing photographs! Here are some of their best: (scroll to see more)
In the afternoon we focused on using shutter speed to capture movement! There was running, jumping, spinning, ribbon twirling and LOTS of laughter.

Check out those moves! We’ve already had brilliant feedback and can’t wait to be back at the National Maritime Museum in the Autumn.
We both had so much fun and learned a lot. Thanks to you and Lillie for all the advice and ideas. When we got home yesterday, Olivia went in the garden with her sister and played around with a torch in the dark, experimenting with the shutter speed setting, and got some great shots. I’m going to encourage her to come along on another course soon. – Rachael & Olivia
