Photographing Glasgow

The Higher Photography class, accompanied by Ms Steinert and Mrs Macfadyen, visited Glasgow at the end of last term to gather material for the contextual imagery unit of their course, focusing on the urban environment. Each member of the class had chosen a style to work in: macro, romanticism, urban realism or documentary.

It was a rather dreich day, so the tripods came in handy, but there was plenty to grab their lens’ attention at Central Station, the Botanic Gardens and Glasgow University, including the largest sweet potato anyone had ever seen.

Certain people were more adventurous than others (actually, they kept wandering off and climbing up stairs) but we managed to contain everyone. As we wandered down Great Western Road towards Kelvinbridge Underground, we were all caught by how high and fast the River Kelvin was flowing (more photos!) We dropped into designers, Timorous Beasties, to admire their amazing, beautiful and mad fabrics before heading home.
