Level 3 Photography Students Head to Chester Zoo

This week our Level 3 Photography and Digital Imagery students from Newcastle College took a walk on the wild side as they enjoyed a trip to Chester Zoo to develop their wildlife photography skills.

The experience not only allowed students to practice using settings on their digital cameras, covering topics such as aperture, shutter speed and composition, but they also had to adapt and act quickly to enable them to capture the animal’s “good side”.

Students were then tasked with editing their images using Adobe and Photoshop to enhance their photos which featured a range of creatures great and small from elephants and primates, to tree frogs and butterflies.

Janine Grocott, Curriculum Leader for Level 3 Photography & Digital Imaging at Newcastle College, said: “Field trips like this provide valuable hands-on experience and help students develop their photography and digital media skills.

“Our first year Photography and Digital Media students had the chance to photograph a variety of animals and scenes, allowing them to explore different aspects of photography, such as composition, lighting, and subject matter.”

Take a look at some of their incredible photos below.
