Photography skills showcased at House Photography

The long awaited House Photography Competition took place this week, with our favourite judge, Tim Dickeson, bringing his considerable experience as a professional photographer and former picture editor with the Western Mail into play. I am always very grateful to Tim: his expert eye picks out details in the construction of the shot that would pass most of us by, and he looks at detail and framing very carefully.  He always takes the time to talk about how he arrives at his decisions, and pupils are eager to pick up some top tips to make their entries stronger still next year.

There was a delightful range of photos on display covering our five categories - Encased, Relaxing, Excitement, Baker's Dozen and Orange.  It was also good to see so many pupils from different year groups represented, and winning prizes.  Teilo this year were the clear winners, with Dyfrig second and Euddogwy in third.

The outstanding photo of the competition this year was awarded to Ellen W’s “Encased” entry of a hermit crab surreptitiously proffering a claw.   Finding a hermit crab was hard enough, but the framing and technique used were very difficult, and this was a superb photo, one to be proud of!
