"Cause and Effect" Photography Workshop / by Vika Nightingale

On Monday I spent my day teaching a group of teenagers about photography at the National Centre for Craft and Design as part of a summer series of workshops with artists and designers. 

We covered artistic principles (such as composition, light, narration, etc.) as well as the technical aspects of cameras. A focus was also drawn towards mobile photography as a considerate medium of choice. Here are some of my images from the day:

...and kids' feedback:
