Photos from a rookie
After putting it off for a month, I finally got around to looking through my photos from a photography workshop I did - read here.
The aim of the workshop was to teach 10 young Margaret River locals about photography, with tips from expert Christian Fletcher,
but also it was to make them think about the appreciation they have for certain places within their community.
- The Organic Garden
- Boranup Forest
- The junkyard
- Redgate Winery vineyards
- Contos beach
- Gnarabup beach
- Rivermouth beach
- Wallcliffe house
....and I actually can't remember the last two off the top of my head.
I guess I've been nervous about selecting my "best photo" for the upcoming exhibition we've been asked to take part in... but it has to be done. The above are a few I've shortlisted, and I think the 6th (flowers) and 7th (top of a tin can stack in the junkyard) and last one (weeds at the beach) are my favourites.
I also love the one of my friend Maya, who I met at the workshop, but I don't think we're supposed to include photos of people! It's all about selecting a photo that represents a place that means something to us and we have to write 50 words or less to explain why we chose it.
Let me know if you have a favourite, it mayyyy make my decision easier.
Note: The first six photos are from the Organic Garden; then one from the local junkyard;
one from Boranup Forest; and the rest are from cliff at Contos.
