Photography 2A FSH214


Photography 2A will diversify and broaden your capacity to understand and engage with the methodologies and processes associated with contemporary photographic practice in the expanded field. Through group and individual tasks, you will develop your ability to experiment with aspects of the photographic medium, iterative processes and idea development. Photography 2A increases your competency in photography by instruction in the use of colour management from capture to print. The photographic use of colour as an expressive medium is explored through a set project with a self-directed thematic, developing colour literacy and the 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.
