Photography Tuition for the British Army
We were thrilled to be asked to teach some members of the British Army some basic photography. Some soldiers from the second Battalion of the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment (2PWRR) at Woolwich Barracks had a go at portraits and landscapes, and thinking more clearly about backgrounds.
One of the things we discovered is that soldiers wearing DPM (that’s camouflage to civilians) really blend into each other if they are in the background, and it’s vital that the shapes of individuals are separated if we’re not going to end up with a multi legged, multheaded squaddie monster. It sounds obvious but it’s not. As you can see in this pre-course picture it doesn’t always work.
A great advantage of working with soldiers is that they are really good at holding the camera still. No bad thing!
So with a bit of expert tuition, we made things better!
