The Art of Photography aims to provide an introduction to the basic concepts, working methods and resources used in photography and is suitable for students with a wide range of prior knowledge and skill. As well as developing practical photographic skills I’ll be encouraged to view my work in a broader context and to start to understand the cultural positioning of photography.
On successful completion of this course I’ll be able to:
- demonstrate an awareness of the principles of composition when planning and taking photographs using suitable cameras, lenses and other equipment.
- demonstrate a knowledge of the different qualities of light, both natural and artificial, and the properties of colour, using methods of control to pictorial advantage.
- show a basic knowledge of the principles of graphic design in photography, conveying information by means of a single photograph or a series of photographs.
- reflect perceptively on my own learning experience.
Easy if you say it all quickly!!!
