Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Lammers

An exciting medium, Photography explores the creative potential of drawing with light.  Students undertake practical work acquiring photographic and camera skills. Combining these with the study of photographers’ work enables students to manipulate their own images. They then move into the world of Photoshop and the manipulation of imagery and concept.  This is an essential subject for those who wish to become literate in the decoding and development of imagery of their visual world. A folio is then produced for the external exam.

Each student will undertake practical work, photographic techniques and get to understand the power of Photoshop.  Students will maintain a diary and research the work of a number of photographers.
