School Photography Workshop
In this workshop, students will look at the techniques used by John to light waterfalls at night and link this to the underground photography methods used by Martyn Pitt. With these new techniques learnt, students will then get to put this into practice to capture mining objects, experimenting with light to create their own photographs of items in the Museum’s collection in the dark, just like Martyn Pitt and John Arnison. Finally, discover how to develop an analogue print in a demonstration by John.
Following the workshop, students have the opportunity to exhibit their work digitally and a select few will be chosen by John to be put on display in the Museum.
