How to take that per­fect shot

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

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.
