Satellite’s Photography Workshop

On a beautiful sunny autumn day in the recent April school holidays a group of inspiring teenagers, along with two Satellite leaders came together to capture/talk about/observe and connect with each other and life around us. Presented with a photography scavenger hunt we explored a simple 1km radius around Brunswick, realising that within that circle there were seven really unique ways of seeing/sharing the spaces/paths we walked.

The scavenger challenge was to take photographs that represented (in no particular order):

  • Mood or Emotion
  • Your Favourite Colour
  • Close-up
  • Patterns or Texture
  • Happiness
  • Words That Speak To You
  • Something Old
  • Where You Stand
  • Looking Up
  • Ordinary Beauty
  • Movement
  • Shadow
  • Your Reflection In An Unexpected Place
  • Silence
  • Nature
  • From A Different Angle
  • Your Personality
  • Connection

We picked a few faves and played with some editing tools to create images that we felt best spoke the feeling/thought/idea behind the images. Everyone had such original styles and at the end of the day we had a mini-exhibition to share thoughts around how images work well together and how they told their own stories. It was a beautiful, interactive, relaxed day and the whole group agreed that we would all love to meet again to build on our group exhibition 🙂

Thank you to the wonderful young people who gave up a day of their holidays to be creatively brave and adventurous, to Jodie for being such a great help and presence and to Rita who helped get us beautiful new ipads to use as the lens through which to ask ‘Do You See What I See?’
