Photography at Park enables students to explore a range of lens-based media techniques and processes. This will include theme-based photography such as portraiture, landscape or still life, alongside aspects of exploring imagery and film.
Unit 1 consists of an introduction to photography, focusing on aspects of composition, how a camera works and exploring the history and development of Photography over the years. Research on a range of photographers from contemporary through to historical artists is compiled and then applied to their own portfolios.
Unit 2 consists of exam preparation through analytical and evaluative skills to enable a detailed response set by the board. This will include refining their photographic skills and building up their portfolio in order to achieve their full potential.
