Australian Rural Life (Royal Show Topic)
Photographs must depict some aspect of modern agricultural activity or life on the land and can include people, animals and machinery in a rural environment. The photograph must have been taken in Australia.
To portray the Australian Rural Life, I would suggest that you need to truthful as possible and allow the subjects to tell their story through your image.
Try to capture the essence of the outback, the rural industry and way of life – to evoke feelings and emotions in people that view the images which encourage them to feel a sense of being there, and heighten their appreciation for what is pictured in the scene.
Dust, movement, rural untidiness all these can contribute to an image that conveys what it means living from the land.
You might have to engage with farmers in order to get the desired images, be aware to portray farming in a positive way. An image of dried trees could be misinterpreted as mismanagement, when they could have died form drought, fire or some other incident not related to farm management. try to portray the positive side of farming, you might find some farmers might have doubts due to the reasons mentioned above.
