Golden time: Film and Photography students visit Whitstable

‘In film and photography the golden hour (sometimes known as the magic hour) is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is warmer and softer compared to when the sun is higher in the sky.’

On Thursday afternoon, November 20th, A-level Film and Photography students took the train to Whitstable for a much-needed change in scenery to use in the development of their coursework projects. It was a cold but bright day, perfect for those dedicated enough to spend all their time outdoors in the fresh air, waiting, observing, and composing the shots they wanted. As the ‘golden hour’ approached, students made the most of the light and the landscape, and returned to Rochester with plenty of raw material ‘in the can’. We look forward to seeing the results later in the term.
