Photography visit Gibberd Garden
Year 9 photography students from Stewards Academy ventured out on a misty morning for an excursion to the Gibberd Garden; a local landmark filled with sculptures, natural greenery and an abundance of photographic hotspots waiting for the next photographer to illustrate their wonders.
The objective was to develop their understanding and photographic techniques for their new project- Built Environment. The students used a sculpture trail organised by the garden’s volunteers to systematically record photographs of the art pieces alongside their natural environment.
Pupils enjoyed being outside the classroom and they really could see the benefits of the trip. One student said: “I believe that it will be beneficial to my coursework because it has given me the opportunity to take different styles of photos and further my knowledge about shadows and contrast in the built environment.”
Stewart Li, who teaches photography, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Gibberd Garden for their support and for preparing the gardens for our visit. An enjoyable photography trip was had by all!”
