On Saturday 24th November some of the BTEC course members, plus members from one of the other groups headed up to London principally to view the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum, and the Taylor Wessing Portrait Awards exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. There was also going to be the chance to take photos round London. Weather wise it was awful. It rained all day, but considering the flooding in other parts of the UK, we shouldn’t really complain.
Things I learned from the exhibitions.
1) Photos the I think maybe bad, can win prizes.
2) I generally prefer photos with people in.
3) The importance of backgrounds.
There’s a lot of things to think about, but I’m even more excited about Photography.
I did manage to get some photos while I was up there, and even got the ‘panning’ shot I wanted.
