About the Project

How to get involved

  • Take a photographic portrait of someone in their daily routine. The person could be photographed at work, at home or in a favourite place. You must have parental consent to photograph children.
  • Submit your photo at ngv.vic.gov.au/melbournenow/clickwithme between 22 November 2013 and 23 March 2014. Photos selected by Selina Ou will be seen at ngv.vic.gov.au/melbournenow and on display at NGV International. You can submit as many photographs as you would like.
  • By submitting your photo you are agreeing to the clickwithme Terms and Conditions.

Tips and tricks for a great photo

  • Make sure the image is sharply focused and the person is centered in the middle of the frame.
  • To avoid distortion, take the photo squarely in front of the subject.
  • If a flash is used, avoid strong reflections caused by glass and other reflective surfaces.
  • When composing your picture, consider what to include in the background and what it reveals about the person’s occupation or interests. For example, when photographing a postman, you could include their mode of transport, their mailbag, or a house with a letterbox. Remember, the location can be as interesting as the person in the photo.
  • Consider photographing your local baker, your teacher, your coach, your parents or your doctor; anyone you come across in your daily life.
