Photography Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss M. Vercoe

The course at this level presupposes that the Level 1 course has been completed satisfactorily by students. In Photography this year students will develop skills using a digital camera to visually explore the world. Students will research artists by investigating their methods and ideas relating to photography and apply these conventions their own work. Students will generate and develop ideas to produce a body of work based on an individually selected broad theme. Students will learn technical skills including how to use photographic equipment such as cameras, lighting, digital processes and photo manipulation. Students will spend time looking at relevant and contemporary photographers, both internationally and in New Zealand. We will look at how to develop ideas using photographic procedures, digital developing procedures and your individual methodologies. 

Students are expected to spend significant time taking photos outside of class time so homework is essential in this subject choice.

Where a student wishes to take TWO of the Level 2 Visual Art subjects, they need permission of Mrs Crombie
