Pictures of real beauty

Stone magic by Ben Murphy

IT promises to be a fantastic photography exhibition.

Pictures from the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS) which we are delighted to produce today, tell their own stories.

The brilliant work, Moments Captured, is by students in a local Education Training Board class.

The exhibition at Unit 4 MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre runs from June 8, 11am, to June 14.

The exhibition is well worth a visit and all are welcome.

The photographs are from Level 5 QQI and Level 6 QQI (Quality Qualification Ireland).

This is the examining body that marks the students’ overall project.

The project consists of a printed diary and a portfolio of photographs under different headings, landscape, environment, nature, portraiture, investigative photography, fashion, street life to name just a few of the headings to which the student has to produce a body of work.

 A certain number of photographs in the portfolio have to be mounted.  The students do all of the work themselves, except for framing.

Copies of diaries and portfolios are available for examination throughout the exhibition.
