Lights, camera, shoot!
An insight into the lives of professional photographers, directors, writers and other creative types was granted to Year 10 Photography and Digital Media students who spent a day at Sun Studios in Alexandria on Wednesday. Renowned magazine and celebrity photographer Richard Freeman took 17 students under his wing in a tour of the studios, the range of equipment and his practice.
The girls became familiar with studio lighting, light metres, flash packs and ways to set up a professional photographic shoot – complete with costumes, makeup, props and even smoke and wind machines. This valuable knowledge will be applied by the girls in their upcoming assessment.
