Using Photography to Portray Environmental Concepts and Concerns

 

Using Photography to Portray Environmental
Concepts and Concerns

Exploring Sustainability & The Environment Through Photography


By



Photography can be a powerful tool in getting messages across.  An image can evoke emotion and create connection more instantly than words, and often in a deeper, more meaningful way.  It can turn a dull static word into a vibrant issue worth fighting for.  The saying "A picture tells a thousand words" can in fact be quite true.

As environmentalists we want to utilise valuable techniques like this to create interest and passion around the important issues that are facing the planet today... and into the future.



What issues are important to you?  How could you share your ideas or concerns using photographs?

You may find a single photo makes the best impact... or it may be a story better told in a series of photos.

When you have taken your needed photos, make a poster or a slideshow using them, with maybe a few well chosen words to enhance your message, if needed.


Can you take photos to represent some, or all, of the following concepts?


  • Ecological Footprint

  • Resilience

  • Sustainablility

  • Self Sufficiency

  • Transition

  • Renewable Resources

  • Pollution

  • Global Warming

  • Peak Oil

  • Fragile Ecosystems

  • Extinction/ Endangered Species

  • Animal Rights





Note:  Parents/Caretakers please make sure that children are supervised properly, according to age, ability and the situation.  Also, if there is any doubt, check that it is ok to go and take photos of a particular place before doing so.
