Set Subject: Shadows

Definition: 

A shadow is the contour created when an object or person blocks rays of light from reaching a surface. The shape of a shadow changes based on its relationship with its light source.  Decide how you aim to use the shadows. Do you want them to subtly accentuate a subject? Or do you wish to highlight their effect on it? Perhaps you want to create a composition entirely focused on them. The choice is yours!

Set Subject: Garden City

Definition:

The “garden city” movement is a method of urban planning initiated by Sir Ebenezer Howard in 1898 in the United Kingdom.  Garden cities were intended to be planned, self-contained communities surround by “greenbelts”, containing proportionate areas of residences, industry and agriculture.  It is also the phrase used to describe Toowoomba.  Use your imagination to capture the essence of the “Garden City”.
