Photography 2A FSH214

Launceston, Hobart

Introduction

Photography 2A increases your competency in photography by instruction in the use of digital and medium to large format analogue cameras. Flash photography and studio lighting are demonstrated. The notion of photographic truth is investigated through series of illustrated lectures that explore the history of photography as a documentary medium.

The photographic use of colour as an expressive medium is explored through a set project with a self-directed thematic, developing the your colour literacy and capacity to produce impactful and coherent sequences of photographic images.

Regular group critiques and individual consultation with the lecturer foster the exchange of ideas and provide feedback on your progress.
