Pupils explored slow shutter speed, painting with light, panoramas and depth of field over 5 sessions, which included an after school location shoot in their local area and a trip to Street Level’s gallery and production facility.

Equipped with new techniques, ideas and NVA’s bespoke lighting equipment, the pupils embraced the project with enthusiasm and have created some stunning photographs of their local areas.  The results are a diverse collection of images, from considered studies of nature to sweeping, swirling and imagined landscapes. The pupils used both digital SLR cameras and compact digital cameras – to stunning effect.

Island Drift aims to inspire a deeper appreciation of the unique character of Loch Lomond and the surrounding area, the exhibition of work from this aspect of the engagement programme celebrates the young people’s achievements, evidencing their talent and imagination.
