It is that time of the year again! Pumpkins are being carved and fake cobwebs are appearing in windows, children are dressing up as ghosts & witches and treats are being collected- its Halloween! This week at our after school photography clubs we will be taking photographs of all things spooky. The children will be encouraged to work with their friends to create the most imaginative and creative photographs they can. We’re thinking torches under the chin, scary masks emerging out from behind bushes and ghosts running across the field. This week in the photography classes we will be taking our inspiration from Alex Majoli, Erich Hartmann, Martin Parr and Picasso.

We will make the most of the darker afternoons and use them to our advantage. We may even stay inside and make the room really dark to see what other spooky effects we can get! This week is all about being imaginative and inventive and producing the scariest of photographs!
