Specialist Studio Practice 3 – Shoot towards project

29th February 2016

I volunteer at a kids club called Impact on a Monday night in a school hall. This week was a movie night and I thought it would be a great opportunity to photograph the children’s reactions to the film, their interactions with each other and us Impact leaders, and seeing if I can spot any emotive moments between them all. Obviously there is an issue with the parents permission here – we have permission to take photos of the children for Impact purposes, however I need to get extra permission from the parents if I want to photograph/use them for my project. So I am waiting to ask the parents before I upload any pictures of the children to the internet.

This was quite a tricky shoot because I wanted to photograph the children without them noticing me – however this was made difficult because we were in a small classroom in the school and the lights were off but one was left on, so the children could see me coming if I tried to take some pics. Thankfully the sound from the film was loud enough to mask my ‘clicks’ when photographing, but it was just a tricky shoot in general and I’m not sure I got any images that are good enough to potentially use for my project. I did spot moments but by the time I was ready to press the shutter the moment had gone. This was very frustrating.

However I plan on getting permission from the parents and hopefully having a few more attempts at photographing at Impact.

UPDATE:

Unfortunately it was difficult for me to get permission from the parents to put these images online, however they will be in my research folder for reference.
