Instagram Photography

College Media recently had an opportunity to immerse themselves in the medium of photography. Their project utilised Instagram as a social media platform to establish connections and professionally promote their photographs to a global community. 

On the student’s request to capture photographs beyond just our campus’s gardens, we ventured beyond the realms of our well known. The Multi-Function room housed over 12 different studio set-ups where students could play with light and colour. Outside of school, we took excursions to Maylands and several visits to the Lake. 

What was most warming was the engagement of student’s in how they approached their work. The students personalised their photographs to capture their interests. They used it as a springboard to go out into the wider community. Students hired a specific camera lens (tilt-shift) to experiment, went on their own excursions (to the beach), placed their artwork/drawings situationally in new environments or borrowed drones to capture from new heights. 

Great photographs don’t usually offer themselves up on a plate. You have to go that extra mile to capture them.

Below is a selection from each of the student’s photographic series. They are a display of the student’s patience, perspective taking and a new point of views.
