In July 2013 Get Blaenau Gwent Online supported by Communities 2.0 outreach worker Laura Howe ran a number of Digital Camera Walks in conjunction with Communities First in Abertillery & Llanhilleth. The walking group, who have recently become constituted, meet regularly for walks in different locations around Blaenau Gwent. Outreach worker Laura thought it would be fun to incorporate a spot of photography into the walk. Everyone picked a word and were encouraged to take photos that reflected that word.
Participants were then treated to a buffet lunch, and attended a training
session in Llanhilleth Miners Institute to learn how to manipulate photos and
upload them onto the internet using Flickr.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the
session and further training is planned for the future
