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 exams in Photography. Online Exams are available.
If you opt to take the Photography Online Exams, you will need a digital camera and the means to upload and submit images for your work. Specifics on file size limits and instructions on how to resize your images are provided in the course.
