Exterior Shots

This morning we have been out to take exterior shots of Newcastles Stadium which is St James Park. We took a vary of different shots so that we could use in our documentary as a back drop to the club, we also took shots of statues of Sir Bobby Robson which is situated outside the ground and also Jackie Milburn. After we had checked through the shots we decided that these weren't up to standard and would need to be re-taken at a later date.
