Today has been our last visit to Ysgol Hendrefelin in Taibach, Port Talbot. The aim of Consider Yourself has been to challenge students at the school to think of different ways to express themselves whilst working closely with the local environment. Our student* was given the task of trying to outdo himself and create images better than the previous three weeks. We demanded beautiful clean ambitious images suitable for a magazine or advertising. We wanted pictures that could hold their own in reception areas in important venues. Above all, we wanted our participant to be over the moon about what he had achieved over the course.
Our beginner has already shown that he’s got a natural aptitude for photography and I hope he continues to use his new-found skills in the future. It’s been a real pleasure to work at Ysgol Hendrefelin. I really hope we can go back soon and help another talented young person to realise their creative potential.
*Small class, big ambitions!
