Say cheese! Pupils are all smiles for camera classes

ST Bridget’s School pupils can now show The Whitehaven News photographers a thing or two after spending a week learning how to take the perfect picture.
Every pupil in the Parton school has enjoyed learning about how cameras work and what makes a good shot.
And they were able to put what they had learned into practice on a trip to Buttermere where they were able to snap away at the beautiful scenery on offer.
The culmination of the week was the opening of a photographic exhibit when parents were invited to view their children’s creative work.
One classroom was even converted into a ‘pinhole camera’ in which the room was blacked out, with only a chink of light being allowed through to reflect the outdoors scene onto the walls and ceilings.
Carlisle students Simon White and Anna Bridges have been helping out the pupils with their project.
St Bridget’s headteacher Elizabeth Highton said: “The project has been very successful. The children have enjoyed themselves while learning a huge amount about photography.”
The Whitehaven News’ photographer Mike McKenzie, who was invited to view the children’s work, added: “I was very impressed. I think I’ve got competition!”
