Wow – All you guys sure have been busy!
A great range of archaeological shots were emailed into our Departmental Photographic Scale Competition and wow – we were very impressed!
It’s great to see that our international field schools excite you all and that your photos show this!
So, it makes sense that most of the photos sent in came from recent Flinders Archaeology field schools and field work – like; ARCH8516 Advanced Field School to Chile, the ARCH3306/ARCH8306 Burra Field School and the ARCH8109B Advanced Maritime Practicum in Saipan.
Great to also see that some shots came in from a few consulting archaeologists.
But with every competition, there always has to be a winner. So … congratulations go to Elizabeth Hartnell.
Her winning shot was taken whilst in the field at Plumbago Station, northern South Australia.
Just remember, when taking an archaeological photo you should:
- Keep the feature in focus.
- Keep the scale in focus when taking close ups.
- When using a photographic scale, ensure that the whole scale is within the frame.
- Keep the horizon level.
- Use a clean and tidy photographic scale.
- Preserve the site … don’t stick or poke your scale and/or camera just anywhere!
Keep snapping away and if you have any questions about artefact and site photography, come in and see the Archaeology Technical Officers (SSS143).
