WONDERS of the world of high school students were unveiled in an exhibition at Lismore TAFE yesterday.
Teacher Bettina Walton said the theme of the exhibition, Wonder, challenged students to examine the col- ours and composition of their photos, rather than taking snapshots or "selfies".
Ms Walton said the standard of the 24 works by high school photography students studying at Lismore TAFE was outstanding.
"People today are surrounded by so many retouched or altered images, so we wanted the theme to be about finding beauty in everyday life," she said.
"We wanted students to take a step away from uploading images online and actually print them."
Blue Hills College student Keely Colliton said the two photos of her work featured beautiful green grass, hair and a skirt she had altered.
The 17-year-old said she had enjoyed studying photography at TAFE, and hoped to pursue a career in graphic design.
"I'm excited to have my first photos exhibited," she said.
"I thought they were great photos that sat with the theme and the colours were really rich."
The exhibition is on display in B block, at Lismore TAFE, tomorrow and Friday.
