Going analog

We were very kindly given an old analog camera to use for our project. We were interested in how different it was from a digital camera. It was very heavy and you could hear it working inside when you press the button and when you wind it on. It has lots of different lenses of different sizes. You have to focus it yourself by turning the lens. We weren’t sure if it still worked, but everything seemed right with it so we bought a film to test it. We used it on a tripod because it was so heavy it was hard to hold still!

It worked really well! Here are some of the results of our print photos.

The Blue Hour

Because we are always taking our photographs around Bulwell after school time, we catch the sky changing from daytime to nighttime. Photographers call this time of day The Blue Hour because the sky can look a really intense blue. Here are some of our favourite sky pictures.

Textures and water

Here are some of our favourite photos from the last two weeks.

We walked by the River Leen and we took close up photos of textures.

Photo by Rachel. I like the colour and the water, how it’s swaying and the duck in the background. I feel wicked about this picture!

Photo by Tamara. I like this picture as it has an x, a dot and an H on it. I also enjoy looking at the colours and the lines. I felt happy when I took this photograph.

Photo by Sammy. I like this photo because it is unusual (the shapes).

Image

Photo by Marnie. I really like the way the moon shines in the really effectful water as it runs down the path to Bulwell Bogs.

Photo by Rachel. I like the colour. (The berries were pink) It was hard to take the photo because the wind was blowing and it was dark.

Photo by Marnie. I really like the way the rock gets more narrow into the distance as it slowly fades and I really like the amazing way you get a dark background as it makes the light grey rock loudly stand out.
