High Standard Set In Photography Competition
Photography is such a great way to document the wonderful moments in our lives and allows us to look back and re-live those memories in the future. This is something that really came through with the entries for this year’s Photography Competition run as part of Technology & Commerce Day.
Jessica Ieritano, Technology & Commerce Teacher said, “It was lovely to see so many photographs featuring beautiful landscapes and portraits from past family holidays and travels.”
The Photography Competition was open to all students at the College in Years 5 to 12. Rather than limiting the competition to students who are part of the Media Crew co-curricular group it was a great chance for other students to have an opportunity to showcase their photography skills. As a result, there was a record number of submissions, with over 80 entries this year, which was fantastic to see!
The categories for this year are as follows:
Portrait: An image where the focus must be of a living subject, close enough to discern expression.
Landscape: An image that showcases the built or natural environment around us, with a visible horizon in the background.
Black and White: An image of any subject, with a black & white filter applied. Students are encouraged to think carefully about what subject(s) would suit a black and white styled image.
