Event description

Description

Alison Pouliot is a natural historian and environmental photographer who "uses words and images to evoke stories of the living world, as well as the non-living. I aim to convey the extraordinariness of life, both peculiar and familiar". When you look at Alison's website you will see the stunning pictures she takes, and she is also a wonderful presenter.

We will start in the hall and then in the afternoon go out and photograph nature.

What the day will cover

In situ environmental photography from macro to landscape scales, covering a variety of environmental themes.
• Development of observation skills and fine-tuning to the particularities of environmental subjects.
• Exploration of photographic principles of composition and exposure for tricky situations such as high contrast lighting, moving subjects, low light situations etc.
• Exploration of principles of aesthetics and how aesthetic and scientific photography converge.
• Development of visual concepts and knowing how to anticipate subjects in space and time.

Given the focus is more on the aesthetics it is possible to use a Smart phone if you don't have a good camera.

There are 3 places set aside for school students up to and including year 8, who must have an adult accompanying them (one child only from a family). Year 9 and older use the adult registration. If you are a student up to year 8 please use this link to register.

What to bring

  • a camera or Smart phone
  • wear clothes to go out in the field including closed in shoes. You cannot go out in field without suitable clothes.
  • your lunch

Morning tea provided.
