Photography 2A FSH214

Hobart

Introduction

Photography 2A increases student 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 history of photography as a documentary medium is investigated through a series of illustrated lectures. The photographic series as a presentation form, and the use of colour are explored through two set projects, developing the student's capacity to produce a coherent sequence of photographic images. Regular group critiques and individual consultation with the lecturers foster the exchange of ideas and provide feedback on student progress.
