‘Capturing Liverpool’ with Alsop sixth form
Recently, photography students from Alsop High School sixth form participated in a field trip to Liverpool City Centre.
The trip was for students to work on their photography skills, and to help boost their confidence of working in a public place.
The photographers visited a number of local landmarks around the city and explored some of the historical culture Liverpool has to offer.
They were given a brief talk about the newly unveiled Brian Epstein statue.
They also walked down Matthew Street, learning more about the Beatles.
The day concluded with a visit to the Liverpool waterfront area, where students were able to capture images of the Liver birds and the world-famous architecture.
The students also visited a new exhibition being held at the Open Eye Gallery.
The exhibits were created during lockdown.
This provided students with an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and see how art can be used as a way to handle situations as well as document them.
Mr Morris, head of photography at Alsop, said: “These visits are vitally important to us as a department and school, in helping bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world.
“They are a perfect opportunity for students to develop their knowledge of the subject whilst also learning a little about the history of where they live.”
Tatendo Moyo, a Year 12 photography student at Alsop sixth form, said: “I really enjoyed the opportunity of experimenting with the camera and visiting some of the famous areas of Liverpool.
“I feel it helped me to explore what we have been learning in class and gain confidence using the camera.”
