CCP presented its eleventh annual photography workshop for youth in the City of Yarra. The Rotary Youth Arts Project (RYAP) is a Dancehouse Community Outreach Project, supported by the City of Yarra and Rotary Clubs of Richmond, Collingwood, Fitzroy and Brunswick, in collaboration with Centre for Contemporary Photography. Young people living, studying or attending services in the City of Yarra were invited to participate in a photography workshop at CCP. The nine-week course, presented by artist, gallerist and educator Linsey Gosper, covered a wide range of photography subjects and approaches to making work, including documentary, street photography, portraiture, staged photography and appropriation. Participants were given digital cameras for the duration of the course. While working in these styles students participated in activities exploring, colour, contrast, quality of light, texture, composition, perspective and model direction. Students learnt how to creatively use camera functions such as white balance, ISO and depth of field and were limited to taking five photographs per exercise.
