visual Images Photography spent the evening at the Brownies Group in Friern Barnet this month. We had great fun taking photographs of the little ladies, teaching them about the camera and letting them take photographs for themselves.
Each of the Brownies has left the session with great photos of them and their friends, a basic understanding of photography and a great fun evening posing in front of the camera. We structure or photography evenings to engage with the age group; for brownies we start with a photography lesson looking at the different types of camera, what they have in common and how they are used then we ask them what makes a good photograph and help them understand composition. They then put this into practice as we give them the task of taking photographs of things in the room that begin with the letters BROWNIES and then create these letters in the studio to make memorable image.
We also run these sessions for Guide Groups where we concentrate on Photography as a career, the use of photography in Popular Culture and of course time for them to pose in our visual Images studio.“Thanks to some thoughtful and thorough planning from Chris, the evening ran smoothly with every single girl fully engaged and excited about photography. The girls are still talking about the fun they had several weeks later.” Sunny Owl – 4th Friern Barnet Brownies
