Bolton School, Lancashire

Partnership project

This was part of a class project. Children took staged portraits and documentary style shots of each other which were converted to sepia to get the photography effect of the era. The day involved learning about the basics of composition and portrait photography as well as the way people were photographed in Victorian times.

 What the teachers said

“Three of our young students won regional photography awards with the work they did on our Victorian Focus Day. The children were really engaged with the practical aspects of the day and the delivery was excellent – fun and educational.”

 What the students said

“We loved dressing up and posing in a formal way for the camera!”
