Groundwork Trust Caerphilly

Working with the Groundwork Trust Caerphilly, Ffotogallery Education delivered a two day workshop at Angel House, a popular meeting place for young people in Pengham.

The group of differing ages were introduced to photography and visual literacy in an interactive session about the work of landscape photographers Ansel Adams and Faye Godwin before exploring the world of macro nature photography using National Geographic Photography online resources.

In a number of quizzes and photographic treasure hunts the young people explored the surrounding Parc Coedtir, Rhymney river and Aberbargoed grasslands. Back at Angel House, the group was introduced to editing and enhancing their photographs using iPhoto and Photoshop.

The resulting prints were framed by Ffotogallery and exhibited in Pengham a few weeks later. The work is now also exhibited online via Groundwork Caerphilly’s Flickr stream.
