Photography 201 - Te Hopu Whakaahua 201

Course Description

Students are taught to understand the ways in which photographs are made and the variety of contexts in which they are viewed. Students will learn how to use the manual camera and how to apply these with creative control. 

The course will cover digital photographic processes including the use of Adobe Photoshop software and digital file management. The course will cover still life, studio and documentary photography. Students will study established artist models and use this knowledge to inform their own work. They will then generate and develop ideas to produce a body of work in the form of a folio submission at the end of the year.
