Camera Confidence in Penlan this morning explored themes on employability and empowerment. By encouraging our participants to put themselves in the picture they have full control over the stories they tell. Today we considered body position, eye contact, and posture in order to create a great impression of ourselves in front of the camera. Participants also looked at camera angles, distance from the camera, and composition in order to show us their best sides.
The results are humorous, strong, and loaded with visual motifs to give impressions of confidence. Knowing how and where to place yourself to come across your best to others is a skill we discussed at length. As a result, all our participants felt strong and confident enough to present their photographs to the rest of the group. Standing in front of a group of strangers, presenting yourself calmly and confidently, is no mean feat but our Penlan participants took every challenge in their stride today. Impressive! Well done gang!
