STUDENTS with additional support needs are showing off their impressive photographic skills at a new exhibition.

The Leonard Cheshire Inverness charity has organised a display of the best works produced within its Can Do project, which aims to help 16 to 35-year-olds with disabilities increase their confidence and engage more with the local community.

The works have been on show at Inverness College UHI.

Volunteer co-ordinator Jill Murray said: “All the students were really excited and proud to show their work and to see so many of their friends and family and UHI students looking at their work.

“Before the summer break we gave all the students a disposable camera to take pictures of whatever they liked.

“When they returned we collected the cameras and the students decided how they would like to edit their pictures using different effects, colours, animals – anything that they chose and liked.

“The class then worked on displaying the finished images, inviting guests to see their work. The pieces they have produced are really stunning and visually effective.”
