Young Photographers Enjoy a Training Day in Saffron Walden

Eight schoolchildren from the Saffron Walden area attended a photographic day at Dame Bradbury’s School last Saturday. They were invited along as their entries to the recent Mullucks Wells Photographic Competition were picked by local photographer, David Davies, to be the winning entries. After a look at a range of cameras dating from the late 19th Century to more recent models, they learned how photography has evolved and become the digital photography of today. They were then trained in both landscape and portrait photographic techniques and encouraged to try their hand at both under the guidance of Mr Davies.
