Level 2 Art Photography
Students will explore the technical and creative possibilities of photography as an art form and build their visual literacy and understanding of the creative process. The focus is on original and creative thinking, using a range of experimental approaches and photographic conventions. Students will work towards a folio or digital folio of their photographic or moving image.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
Students will learn how to use a camera and build their understanding of image making and visual communication. This will include learning the technical skills of how to operate a digital SLR camera, the operation of studio lighting and techniques for postproduction using Adobe Suites. This course also introduces seeing, thinking and creating with a critical mind and eye to provide understanding of the construction and manipulation of photographic form and meaning. This course introduces contemporary technologies for producing photographic images. The fundamentals of using a digital single reflex camera are stressed. But the camera itself is redefined in this class by reconsidering everything from cell phones, the scanner as a camera, disposable cameras, film cameras, video cameras as legitimate tools for creating photographic images.
