How to take that perfect shot
SWAN Valley photographer and Paul Dowe Galleries owner Paul Dowe will teach people how to take the perfect “Insta-worthy” photo as part of Entwined in the Valley.
Dowe will hold a special master class next month as part of the four-day Swan Valley festival.
He said in a world where photography had dramatically changed and smart phones had quality cameras, anybody could learn how to be the ultimate Instagram photographer.
Dowe said the basic principals of photography were the same – light, composition and depth.
“We’re going to be taking a walk through Guildford, firstly taking photos of food and then some photos from around Guildford, and teaching people how to shoot on the run,” he said.
“We’ll be showing people some cool tricks on how to create the perfect Instagram picture.”
Dowe will hold three different master classes as part of Entwined and said he was looking forward to being part of the festival.
“This is the first time I’ve been part of Entwined and I’m really excited about it. The weather is great for the festival and the Valley will look fantastic, so it’s the perfect time for people to be outside and taking photos,” he said.
The Insta-worthy photo master class will be held on Sunday, October 7, at Stirling Square in Guildford from 4pm to 6.30pm.
Tickets are $75, with only 15 spots available.

The intersection of West Swan Road and Cranleigh Street will get $196,667 worth of funding for the carriageway to be widened to provide an auxiliary right turn into Cranleigh Street.
West Swan MLA Rita Saffioti said the upgrades would make the intersection safer for road users.
“The program targets sites with a proven crash history or those with a high risk,” she said.
“Since its inception in 2000, it has delivered $450 million in specific safety initiatives on the WA road network for drivers, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.”
The intersection of Gnangara Road and Alexander Drive will receive upgrades, with mast arms and skid resistant treatment to be installed on both approaches, and Joondalup Drive and Pinjar Road in Banksia Grove will be upgraded with predeflection.
