Engine Shed Exhibition
Photography exhibition to showcase students’ work
An excellent range of quality photographs, taken by HND Digital Photography students, are to be exhibited at The Engine Shed in Stirling until the end of May.
A total of seven second year students - Gregor Boyd, Stephanie Fallen, Iain Haugh, Karen Marr, Tracy McMenemy, Paul Reynolds and Alistair Thomson - are showing off their best work at the venue until Wednesday 29 May.
Creative Industries lecturer Hannah Keba, said: “They have been developing their skills in planning and hanging exhibitions and the exhibition is a broad selection of work, demonstrating a variety of different photographic skills developed over their HND course.”
Tracy McMenemy has two photos on display ‘Merman’ and ‘Timeless’. She said: “Merman is a Fantasy Portrait that was created in Advanced Editing. There is a sense of mystery as this Merman steps out of the darkness, his scales becoming alive with the help of Metallic paper, with colours to help the merman blend nicely into his ocean surroundings.
“Timeless is a colour enhanced portrait to create a warm Autumn’s day, the dirt engrained on her hands and clothes from being lost in an adventure or two, from hours of undisturbed play, at an old ruin just through the mossy fence at the end of her garden.”
Paul Reynolds from Grangemouth also has two pieces in the exhibition. He said: “These two pieces combine my love of photography with my hobby of RC Planes and the challenge of capturing these small but fast planes in a way that makes them look real.”
Photography courses are growing from strength to strength at FVC and they have just started recruiting for a new NC Photography course which will start in August.
