Photosymbols shoot August 2023
We had a great time doing a photo shoot last month with the lovely people from Photosymbols
Panda, Pete, Steve and Joe from Photosymbols
The pictures we helped make will eventually become easy read images that you can download from the Photosymbols website.
This helps to make easy read documents and websites for people with learning disabilities (and other people).
If you ever wanted to know how those images are made, now you can find out!
It all starts with setting up the room with lots of lighting and a white background for the pictures. Here you can see Ife ready to have her picture taken:
Each person on the shoot had make up done before the photos. This was so they looked their best for the camera and their skin wasn’t too shiny! Here is Vincent getting his make up done:
The people in the pictures were asked to do various poses and actions. Here Joe is showing Abi what pose he wants for the camera:
Here is Steve taking one of the photos:
Everyone had a great time getting their pictures done and we had a lot of fun. We would recommend it to any group if you’ve never tried it.
We’re pleased to be able to help make more images to help people understand information more easily. Watch out for some more Lewisham people when you see easy read over the next few months!
