"I enjoyed starting a hobby in amidst the doom and gloom of lockdown and it’s interesting how taking a photo with a manual camera, which you can't check immediately afterwards and setting up the positioning and camera, changes your focus of the thing you're looking at. In the context of COVID-19 the idea of having to shift perspectives was especially poignant."

"I enjoyed being on the course with my son enormously.  To do this together was an experience I will treasure for ever and my son got so much out of It. To able to do it in our local borough was fantastic."

"The intergenerational aspect made it interesting, bringing together older people like me, who recall when we only had the use of analogue cameras, together with those who see this film as an exotic new way to express creativity. The course provided me with a useful project perspective for resurrecting my analogue practice; and specifically, after lockdown, it gave me a very welcome excuse to rope in my three adult children as models!"
