My work experience by lucy young age 14 and a half……….

Work experience.

My name is Lucy Young and I am aged 14, today I did my first day of work experience with Sandy Young photography (who is my dad). I wasn’t there for very long as it was a short job but the time I was there was very pleasurable. I didn’t really have to do much as, like I said, we weren’t there for very long. All I had to do was hold a flashgun, dad told me where to point it and where to stand. I’m glad that is all I had to do else I probably would have broken one of his camera’s, which would not have been good.
We went to a nursery called ‘kool kidz’ to take the pictures and met some people from Lloyd’s bank there. The people from Lloyd’s bank wanted us to take some pictures of them outside the nursery and then again inside. They had invested some money into making an extension into the nursery, which was why we were there.
Today I learnt that when you are taking a picture, you have to make sure that everything is the exact right place and also you have to make sure that before you take the actual picture, you need to take a practise one just to make sure the lighting is right and all of the people are in the correct position. Today has been good experience for me because now I know how a photo shot actually works and why they some people have them. This may come in handy in the future.
Two weeks ago he went to the Mobo Awards and didn’t take me with him, which I was really disappointed about. So instead of that he took me to photograph some bankers. Not the same really but it was good experience!
