Level 3 Art Photography

13ARTP
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Cooper

A practical course where students learn to use the digital camera to visually investigate the world around them. 

Experience at Level 2 Photography is highly recommended as we continue to build students' knowledge and skills to create sophisticated, conceptual work in Level 3.

Working to individually chosen themes, students will concentrate on refining the use of studio lighting and compositional elements to develop their ideas visually. Adobe Photoshop and InDesign software are used to enhance or digitally manipulate their own photographs for effect.


Recommended Prior Learning

At the discretion of the HOD.
