My World Through a Lens

Opening 6pm Friday 31 July 2015

Exhibiting 01 August - 13 September 2015

A grant through Regional Arts NSW, Country Arts Support Program allowed Upper Hunter Community Services to deliver photography workshops using small cameras and the technology of phones and tablets to a novice group of individuals in the local Muswellbrook community.

 

Two workshops were held with participants from Muswellbrook High School and Challenge Disability Services where they learnt fun photo facts along with foundation guidelines and out of the box photographic techniques including homemade filters for lenses with cellophane and glass lenses, tripods from pencils and bulldog clips. Technical skills were played with to create some panoramic photos that will be sure to make you look twice.

The resulting exhibition My World Through a Lens celebrates the individuality and everyday world of the participants through photography.

Exhibiting from 1 August to 13 September 2015. Opening night 6pm Friday, 31 July 2015 with refreshments courtesy of Two Rivers Hunter Valley Wines, Pukara Estate, Hunter Belle Cheese and Artiste Espresso Bar.
