British Wildlife Photography Awards

Me and my Interactive Media class visited the Beaney Museum in Canterbury. They had an exhibit for the British Wildlife Photography Awards.

I saw many different photos with different meaning, what surprised me the most was most of the photos were not set up. Only a few photos were setup. I also learnt that over and under exposing and over exposing a photo to light can be a good thing because it can make the photo look good and improving the meaning of the photo as well.

I mainly looked at three photos
