Photography 3A FSH311



This unit  focuses on the attainment of an advanced standard of photographic practice.

Students commence a self-directed yearlong personal project that will be fully resolved in Photography 3B. Students focus on the development of a proposal, journal and experimental and preparatory work for the yearlong project. The aims and outcomes of the project are refined by the student's presentation of their project proposals in class. Regular group critiques and individual consultation with the lecturer foster the exchange of ideas and provide feedback on student progress.
