Photographic Group’s New Romney Trip

On Tuesday 9th of July a number of our Photography students visited two exhibitions which were part of the JAM On The Marsh arts festival.

Our first stop was at The Romney Marsh Visitor Centre where there was an exhibition of images by local photograher Amos Miller.

Miller’s work uses a number of photographic techniques, which our students are learning in thier sessions.

The group then went to Dungeness, to the End Of The Line Cafè, where there was another exhition by young students who live on the Marsh. This exhibition displayed a mix of photographic genres including portraits and abstract images shot on the Marsh.

We also enjoyed a pleasent lunch in the cafe with trains from the light railway stopping outside.

After lunch we were able to spend some time at Dungeness. We went for a short walk around the estate and the students used the time to practise thier photograhy skills.

On our return to the centre we looked at the images the students had taken and discussed them. There were some very good images taken on the day.
