Level 3 Art Photography

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Bribiesca

A photographer is a professional that focuses on the art of taking photographs with a camera. Photographers use artificial and/or natural lighting to capture pictures of various people, places and things in a variety of settings.
Students will continue to develop their digital SLR camera skills and develop a range of photos within their chosen subject matter. They will work with a range of contemporary photography techniques and models to create high end photographs. Students will show understanding of photography conventions and combine these skills to produce a folio of work. Students will have the option to pay a $50 bond at the start of the year in order to borrow the Schools cameras outside of School hours. This bond will be refunded at the end of the year.
