... and stand well back! Mr Charles's Year 11 group produce some great 'Light Drawings' using an SLR camera with an exposure set to 30 seconds. Just enough time to light a firework, draw a pineapple or write out a word. This is a highly experimental way of working, and the group were totally up for it! Well done you lot... I think the results speak for themselves!
