The course aims to reduce inappropriate use of the selfie in public settings and increase the quality of what has become an important repository of social documentation. "We've all seen badly framed, poorly lit and out of focus images in our social media streams, and we at TAFE NSW have said enough is enough," said Jim Griffiths, TAFE NSW Brand ManagerThe course will cover topics such as the history of the selfie, faking spontenaeity, photographic composition at arm's length, the selfie and politics, the selfie and popular culture. It will also cover some basics such as lighting, framing, perfecting the duck face and how to avoid the dreaded 'selfie neck'. One of the most exciting units of study is the many inappropriate uses of the 'selfie stick' that are completely unrelated to photography. "With trillions of gigabytes of data being uploaded every day we can now look forward to our society being represented in a better light for future generations," said Mr Griffiths. "And we all know that the secret to success is good lighting." Only attractive students will be considered for enrolment (at least a 7 out of 10). The first students are expected to start the course on 1 May this year. Enrol Now!
TAFE Western creative arts students will be exhibiting their work at the Myall Street Campus in Dubbo this Saturday 5 November. The students are studying a range of creative pursuits including design, graphic design, photography and visual arts. The display is their end-of-year exhibition and represents the cumulative total of their endeavours throughout the year. "We are very proud of how (the exhibition) has come together," Vicki Vance (pictured standing), head teacher of TAFE Western Creative Industries told the Daily Liberal. Pursuing artistic talent is something that Visual Arts Diploma student, Meredith Stendell (pictured seated), has found to be very emotionally therapeutic as well as creatively satisfying. "This year … I have experienced family members moving out and I've lost family members as well. So I am exploring emotion and how to depict it through painting," she said. "My art has helped. When I came back from my dad's funeral, painting was very cathartic and it just flowed."Meredith has found the studying of her Diploma to be so enriching she is planning on enrolling for an Advanced Diploma next year.

A group of screen and media students from Bathurst TAFE are having their work showcased at Metro Cinemas. The free public screening, which will take place on Wednesday 7 December, has been made possible through collaboration between TAFE media teacher Simon Fraser and the local Metro Cinemas. "Our students have been working very hard over the year to create some outstanding work and Metro Cinemas have been very supportive in allowing them to shine on the silver screen," Mr Fraser told the Western Advocate. Needless to say, the students themselves are also pretty excited about the opportunity for their work to find an appreciative audience, even just for one night. "Seeing our films on the big screen is an awesome experience," said screen and media student Arwa Merchant. "We have been looking forward to this all year and we hope everyone can come along and support us." The students have been studying a range of screen and media disciplines including film-making, camera, editing, photography, writing and animation. As well as their work being enjoyed by a live audience, the students and their teachers also hope the screening will show potential students the wide range of skills that can be learnt at Bathurst TAFE.
Talented Photo Imaging students from Mudgee TAFE are exhibiting their work in a local bakery. The exhibition, titled On the Rise, features work from part-time students who have honed their skills after just six classes. "To have a show of this calibre after only six classes is a credit to them," Jude Morrell, photography teacher told the Mudgee Guardian & Gulgong Advertiser. "And to be able to display the photographs in such a great location is fabulous." Ms Morrell added that many local award-winning photographers have learned their skills at TAFE Western, so this exhibition will help to cement that reputation. The exhibition was the brainchild of Mudgee student and passionate shutterbug Paula Hanson, who helped inspire other passionate shutterbugs to enroll in the TAFE classes. "We have students travelling from as far away as Condobolin and Dubbo," she said. "It has been a very supportive and creative group."The students' photographs will be on display at the Mudgee Bakery & Café for the next couple of weeks.

"I have learnt so much, this goes much deeper than previous workshops I had attended or YouTube tutorials. This is on a different level." Julijana, photography student Photographer Julijana Griffiths says she knew how to take photographs and knew her camera – but needed to formalise her knowledge. Studying Photography at TAFE NSW was the natural way to enhance her career skills. "My TAFE NSW teachers used their industry connections to offer real-life photography experiences," says Julijana. "My teacher Linda still works in the industry and shares her working scenarios with us, that’s a great dimension to have." The results were astounding: Julijana made the final stages of Capture magazine Australasia's Top Emerging Photographer Competition 2018; and the nation's largest photography competition, Head On. Check out some images from Julijana's photo-essay Prisoner of Age, submitted to Capture. It features images of her father, Gordon. Photos: Julijana Griffiths
