Over the past 2 days I met the people taking part in the project. It was very interesting meeting them and hearing some of their stories, and it was great to see the so excited about this opportunity.
As a helper it was my job to assist with any camera issues they had, and show them how to work the camera. The workshop today involved getting to grips with the camera, as many of them had never even touched a DSLR camera.
We were at Somerset House and we walked around the grounds, and the participants weretaking pictures of anything that caught their eye. The cameras were set to manual mode, and as the weeks go on they will learn how to use the cameras properly and learn how to set them up to get the shot they want.
