Black Country Photography Trip
Our photography department offered a fantastic trip as Mrs Brierley and Miss Crewe took the Year 12 A-Level photographers on a day out to the award-winning Black Country Living Museum. The museum, which provided the backdrop for many famous Peaky Blinder’s scenes, tells the story of one of the very first industrialised landscapes in Britain.
Students shot various photographs around the 26-acre site for their portfolios based on the theme of ‘Growth and Decay’ and had an opportunity to hop on a tram, venture down the mine, visit the vintage cinema and enjoy some traditional fish and chips for lunch! One of the students took over 900 photographs which be developed into his final piece via a series of visual experiments and digital refinements. We look forward to seeing the outcome which encompasses the fantastic day we had! It is no wonder that our GCSE and A Level Photography courses are so popular and produce such talented work!
