We started off the day by getting the minibus to the Scotts Project Hall, we were all very nervous and naïve as to what was to come, we had been told that we were working with adults with learning disabilities and to bring our cameras but that was about it. At first when we were introduced to the residents of the trust we were hesitant and awkward however as the day progressed we became more at ease and found ourselves thoroughly enjoying the experience. We spent the day with them taking a photography master class in which we took Christmas portraits with fun props and clothing, which will be turned into an amazing collage. We also taught them how to take photos and then later edit them. The day was filled with laughter, chatting and some dancing too! We finished up with a nice lunch and then after an amazing experience we headed back to school.
It was a fantastic experience and I met some amazing people who's happiness was a joy to see, I had so much fun talking to them and laughing with them as well as learning some important life skills too!
