Photography in Lockdown

The 'Photography in Lockdown' course was the photography tutors' response to the Covid 19 crisis and the temporary suspension of all face to face teaching. It was delivered free to existing photography students, the intention being to explain and demonstrate how to use the everyday environment to produce quality images. The subject areas included still life photography at home, using a window to light a portrait and street photography.

This exhibition is a distilation of the great photographs produced during the course in response to the assignments. The course will continue through the second half of the autumn term.
