Photo Essays form a major part of the syllabus within the Henry Lawson Camera Club.
Members are encouraged to use their creative skills in telling a photographic story using both text and images.
A photo essay is a collection of related images presented in a collage style to tell a story.
It is a narrative of connected events presented in a series of sequenced and related photographs.
A photo essay will set a context. It may convey an emotion or possibly illustrate a concept or key competency. The essay may tell the progression of events via a start, middle and end technique.
The essay should contain a brief story as an introduction to the photographic essay.
The images will be presented as eight (8) digital images with the dimensions of 1024 x 768 pixels.
The images will not be judged on individual photographic merit. The prime objective is to ensure that they convey the message of the essay.
