NC Film & Photography student Anthony Johnston has been putting his new Sony DSC-HX400V camera through its paces and has shared this atmospheric shot, taken during the cold snap a few weeks ago (31st January 2018).
“When I got to take home and trial my new college camera, nothing escaped the lens. I took this in the early morning during heavy snowfall, focused through the bedroom window. I was standing back in the room, as not to frighten the crow (it may mistake the camera for a shotgun, crows are VERY clever). A simple, manual set-up, if I recall, quick point, adjust and shoot. I must also thank the crow for its’ cooperation, it was a most serendipitous photo-session!”
As part of a new initiative launched this year all bursary funded students accepted onto the NC Film & Photography course at Cumbernauld campus will receive their very own camera, tripod and camera bag. The equipment will be theirs to keep on successful completion of their one year course as part of a costed programme within New College Lanarkshire. The equipment for the current cohort of students includes:
- Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400 Camera
- Manfrotto Compact Advanced aluminium tripod with 3-way head
- Manfrotto Advanced camera shoulder bag
Applications for the NC Film & Photography course (beginning 20th August 2018) are now being taken. To apply follow this link
