Edition 1 February 2011
Edition 2 March 2011
This is one of the first exercises that all first year students undertake- it encourages students to explore a familar plave and space using all their senses; feeling what's around them, letting go of preconceived ideas and notions and being open to a 'sense of place'. Students then return with their camera- here are some of our first year full time studnets' images:

"What's first year at PSC really like?"...
On Thursday 3 March the first year students had the opportunity to meet some second year student experts. While eating away the popcorn the first years listened to some great tips about how to get through the first year at PSC and have a lot of fun. The key messages from Steph, Carol, Myles and Graeme were to be organised and get lots of feedback from teachers and fellow students!

Winner of the Canon Photo 5 competition 2010 (student entry)
Up against students from other Melbourne institutions, we congratulate Graeme on winning this competition. He was thrilled saying, “I found the Canon Photo5 Competition a great creative experience to be involved in. It really tested my mind to different avenues I hadn't thought of before. It pushed my creative boundaries and I came up with images I never thought possible. I’d like to thank Canon, Sarina and PSC for the opportunity.”
EOS Photo5 is Canon's annual creative photography competition that begins with a brown box. Inside there were 5 separate photographic briefs to challenge photographers and this is the first year of a separate student category.
