Adobe Camera RAW and Adobe Lightroom
Photography has come a long way in the last few years and there are some new photographic workflows that you need to be aware of if you're an aspiring photographer or you're looking at ways to improve your skill set. In this short course we discuss workflows and how to get the best results when taking and processing images using Adobe camera RAW and Lightroom.
*Attendees will need to bring their own media drive with a USB interface and a selection of images they would like to edit.
Creative Writing: Using Visual Artworks and Photographs to Create a Short Story Character
This workshop introduces teachers of secondary students to using visual artworks and photographs as a stimulus for creating an interesting short story character. Run by an established creative writing teacher, this workshop suggests ways teachers can enable students to develop a first draft of an engaging short story based around this character. They will use creative writing strategies that can be expanded and developed back in the classroom.
Sounds in Space
This two hour workshop will cover the basics of sound spatialisation for media production. Using the new state-of-the-art 16 channel sound system in Murdoch's Creative Media wing participants will collaborate on a multichannel soundscape and learn how to transfer ideas as well as content into a stereo environment.
