One of the highlights of the Advanced Diploma photojournalism course is a location flash workshop. This year’s took place on Saturday August 20, with 15 students, five tutors and a dozen models on the go from 10am to 5pm.
Inspired by guest lectures the previous week from Scott McNaughton, The Weekly Review photographer and PSC tutor, and Simon Schluter, resident portrait wizard at The Age, students were required to shoot at least two location assignments on the Saturday using off-camera flash before returning to college to edit and file their images.
Assignment briefs were prepared by Photojournalism Major Coordinator, Bill Bachman. Subjects ranged from street artists, architects and fashion designer/models to a busker, art curator, rowing coach, property developer, environmental planner and flight attendant. These roles were mainly played by first year Advanced Diploma and Bachelor Degree students, along with a few volunteers from outside the college.
Bill, along with PSC Senior Fellow Michael Coyne and staffers David Callow, Scott McNaughton and Vicki Bell, advised and assisted students throughout the day. At the end of the workshop students presented their best work in a slide show. PSC is proud to announce that our Full Time Course applications are now open. Click here to find out more.
