Hey guys!

So if you guys read my blog last year, you would know that I’m quite involved with Flinders Photography Club over here in our Uni!! The last semester we did a Victor Harbour shoot and there was a great turnout. Everyone picked up a thing or two about photography. The experts get to teach, the novices gets to learn! It’s a win-win situation!

After a meet and greet session, we had our first workshop for the semester. We had a tee-shirt silk screen printing session because club T-shirts are just waaaay too expensive for us students! And one of the photography club's motto is: if you can make it, why buy it? We will try to make our club fund stretch as far as it possibly can! During the session, we had a tutorial where we teach the fundamentals of photography including technical stuff like F-stop and ISO as well as design elements and basic photo composition.

Where do we get the room from? Thank you Flinders Uni housing! Hahaha! That's one of the perks you get if you are living in Flinders Deirdre Jordan village. You have access to great tutorial rooms in the community centre just a stone's throw away from your bedroom - and its free to use for villagers! For our indoor studio session, we teamed up with makeup guru Priscilla for a beauty shoot inspired by the runways of Fendi 2012. High fashion meets our low budgets ;) But no worries!! We got our art stuff, the gold leaves available from Riot @ Westfield Marion @ AU8.90 per pack. So make full use of your time here in Adelaide (if you are an international or exchange student) and learn how to DIY your own fashion story at Flinders Photography Club!

Til next post guys!
