Tutorials and Events

Tutorial: Wildlife/Pet/Critique

Date: Friday, 3rd August 2012
Time: 4pm – 6pm
Location: Central Lecture Block (CLB) (Signage displayed in CLB Foyer)

This week we explore wildlife photography along with creating great pet portraits (‘pawtraits’). The tutorial will also be accompanied by an in-class pet photography demonstration! (thats right – we’ve got some furry friends coming in). We will cover: tour/safari, underwater, macro, bird, and pet as the subjects with 3 types of techniques (portrait, behaviour, and environment). Critique night will follow the tutorial so bring any photos you’d like to show off on USB, or alternatively you could just link us to your online portfolio/flickr on the night.


Open to UNSW PhotoClub members only. Please remember to bring along your membership cards for identification!
