TAOP Course Aims

Course aims

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.

Course Outcomes

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!!!
