5th Photographic Workshop - The Wisbech Institute
On Saturday 2nd June 2018 we held our 5th Photographic Workshop delivered by Matt Emmett of Forgotten Heritage.
We started off in the Boathouse where we learnt about how to use social media to share images and how it can be used as a powerful marketing tool. Matt explained how to create effective posts on our project Instagram page (search Historic Wisbech) and how to reach people, organisations and groups using hashtags. Following that Matt covered the subject of taking close up and detailed shots in preparation for our practical session.
Next we went to The Wisbech Working Mens Institute on Scrimshires Passage/Hill Street. Here we were challenged to find 5 images on a theme or that tell a story about the building.
More photos from the workshop participants will appear on this page when they are submitted.
This iconic building with its tall clocktower and stunning chimes is another of Wisbech’s architectural gems and like many other historic buildings around the town it would benefit greatly from additional financial support, The group is incredibly grateful to the trustees of the Institute for allowing us unrestricted access to this fantastic building.
