Students will develop and apply the knowledge, understanding and skills, below, to realise personal intentions relevant to photography and their selected area(s) of study.
Knowledge and understanding
The way sources inspire the development of ideas, relevant to photography including:
- how sources relate to historical, contemporary, social, cultural and issues-based contexts and external considerations such as those associated with the cultural industries and client-oriented requirements
- how ideas, themes, subjects and feelings can inspire creative responses informed by different styles, genres and aesthetic considerations and/or an individual's distinctive view of the world
The ways in which meanings, ideas and intentions relevant to photography can be communicated include the use of:
- figurative and non-figurative forms, image manipulation, close up, and imaginative interpretation
- visual and tactile elements such as colour, line, form, tone, texture, shape, pattern, composition, scale, sequence, surface and contrast.
Within the context of photography, students will demonstrate the ability to:
- use photographic techniques and processes, appropriate to students’ personal intentions, for example, lighting, viewpoint, aperture, depth of field, shutter speed and movement, use of enlarger, chemical and/or digital processes.
- use media and materials, as appropriate to students' personal intentions, for example, film, photographic papers, chemicals appropriate to darkroom practices, digital media, programs and related technologies and graphic media for purposes such as storyboarding, planning and constructing shoots.
