Half Term fun in London

Some kids and teens have started their half term with a photography course in London. Archbishops Park is a wonderful spot to learn about camera settings and compositions. The children aged 7 – 11 were trying out the close up and landscape settings to either take close up photos with blurred backgrounds or wide landscape photos with everything in focus.  The kids went out to the park looking for shapes, lines and different viewpoints. They were really creative finding reflections and landscape views of the park.

Hannah – 10

Iris – 9

Jasmine – 9




Anastasia – 13

Ariadne – 12

Emily – 14

Joe – 14

Katie – 13

Summer-Lily – 12













The teens aged 12 – 15  walked a bit further and photographed some iconic views of London, while learning about aperture mode and how to use it to photograph the prominent views. They were thinking about compositions and how to apply the rule of thirds and where to place the horizon, as they got really creative with using the low aperture number to blur the backgrounds, or high aperture number to take a sharp photo of the London city landscape. They took some amazing photos from the river bank, walking past the Houses of Parliament, all the way to the Vaults – the famous graffiti tunnel.
