Presented by documentary photographer Andrew Chapman, participants will attempt to use their "Power In Numbers" to document Daylesford in all its glory, then edit the images and present a Powerpoint presentation at the end of the day. Time constraints dictate that participants will need to be shooting digital.
You should bring a digital camera and have a basic working knowledge of photography.
This workshop is more about the process of documentation than camera technique. Whilst Andrew can assist you with the latter, it is the way we see and how we record our environment that this workshop deals with.

Subjects covered include,

Why document?
The photographers approach to documenting.
Approaching and photographing people.
Applying a personal style to documentary photography.
Integrity and honesty.

The day will start with a Powerpoint show of Andrews work and a talk about documentary photography. Then its off to town to shoot the lifeblood of Daylesford. Andrew will be on hand to assist you with any difficulties that you may encounter.
Using the Daylesford Community Houses computer lab, we will attempt to edit our shoot and produce a Powerpoint show of our days efforts.
