highs and lows

Poppytalk by Jo Bradford

I have had a bittersweet week this week, as I got together with two different groups of my photography students to hang and open their end of year shows.
I recently wrote a GCSE darkroom photography course, and this year I delivered it twice weekly to my first guinea pigs cohort - a group of 14 to 22 year olds at a local sixth form college.
After a year of hard work and an extremely steep learning curve, working with manual film cameras and printing in a black and white darkroom, they have produced some outstanding work. I was so proud to see them gathered with their wonderful work last night and really really sad that I won't be seeing them weekly anymore... Although I know we will all stay in touch... I'm missing them already :(
My more mature HND commercial photography group also had their opening night of their show last night, and I am proud to say that their work is diverse and of a high standard. It was lovely to see them all and admire their work on the walls of the gallery.
I am one proud mommie lecturer!!
