Lights, camera, shoot!
To ensure continued interest in photography across the island, the National Cultural Foundation has again hosted its annual Easter Photo Workshop to expose nine- to 11-year-olds to the fundamentals of photography.
Last Saturday several students got lessons from award-winning Barbadian photographer Eric Belgrave on the basic techniques of photography, knowing the camera and what it can do, and how to care for the camera.
Michelle Drakes, assistant to the cultural officer for film and photography, said the workshop, which would continue each Saturday until May 7, had in the past been instrumental in helping the children become participants in the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts, in which many of them had won medals.
Here, Belgrave teaching three of the participants in the workshop, Tyreed Greenidge (centre), Shakiyah Kirton (back) and Akaysiya Maloney, how to use the still fully functional Sinar 4×5-inch sheet film camera, which is one of the first cameras ever made. (LK)
