Wanaka Autumn Art School [progress report]

As mentioned a few days ago, I’d signed up to attend the annual 5 day Autumn Art School at Mt Aspiring College this year. Sort of got into it finally after 24 years of it’s legendary existence partly due to currently being on the committee that underwrites it and organises things.

Here a few images two days into the course, from my perspective in the Landscape Photography class. There are twelve of us being tutored by John Doogan, and they’re all great people and I’m learning lots! For two afternoons now we’ve headed out in the field in the sort of rainy grey weather I seem alone in liking for photography…

Each day we have a set topic too, and the first day it was a 3 metre high poplar, and I decided I’d handle it in a playful way…

Then Albert Town, beside the mighty Clutha River…

My class mates really get into it…

The topic today was to photograph something that illustrates the current so as well as the floating leaves above I tried this shot. Pity about the Didymo…

Not sure who these folk are, but they’re commemorated…

Why have ribbons on this tree?…

This evening I was shooting right through until dark…
