The Camera-arderie group (The Cams) initially formed after meeting each other during a Skippko photography project and are now going from strength to strength, organising their own photography opportunities, sharing knowledge and supporting each other through the friendships that have been formed.
They are currently supporting our ‘Studio 42’ photography project through mentoring new participants and sharing the knowledge and skills they’ve gained both working with Skippko artists Nicki and Sally and through developing their own photography practice.
As part of their role in supporting ‘Studio 42’ the Cams are creating their own responses to the briefs and challenges set by Nicki and Sally.
This page will be updated with new images as they are created.
Brief three – Environment – Oct 22
My favourite small bird the Goldfinch, in my favourite cherry tree
Cygnet having a stretch
Calls landing, sunshine
Technical Challenge Two – Machinery – Sept 22
For this challenge we met at Armley Mills where we asked the group to shoot in black and white. This challenge is all about light, contrast, tone and shape – composition all the way with no distraction of colour!
Here’s a selection of the photographs taken that emphasize the wonderful shapes and angles the group found whilst exploring the theme of machinery.
Heather – Oil
Ian – Cobwebs
Brief Two – Machinery – July 22
The theme for Brief 2 is Machinery and we launched this brief with a photoshoot at the fantastic Armley Mills! We asked the group to create 3 photos of ‘Machinery’.
As ever looking, exploring and composition is at the heart of this brief – and here is a selection of the amazing photos the group have taken.
Technical Challenge One – May 22:
This challenge is all about the nitty gritty of composition.
Using nature as inspiration. We asked everyone to compose 2 photographs where their subject matter is ‘isolated’ within their photos.
Deborah – Determination
Heather – Snow
Ian – Tree
Creative Brief One – Nature – April 22:
We thought as the days are lengthening and we are heading into Spring, the first brief should be based around ‘Nature’.
Here are Camera-arderie’s responses to the brief…
Spring has Sprung
