Photography introduces students to both the technical and artistic aspects of taking photographs. On the technical side students learn about such things as operating a camera, selecting film and what happens in a darkroom. On the artistic side students learn about vocabulary for discussing photographs, elements of composition and a brief overview of the history of photography. Students are required to submit examples of their work and therefore must have access to a camera, either manual or digital. Access to a darkroom is not required.
In completing this subject, among other activities, students complete several shooting assignments and conclude the course by creating a photo essay of their own work on a topic of their choosing.
There are 6 examinations in Photography. Folts et al.,Handbook of Photography, Thomson/Delmar Learning.
