L2 Art Photography

L2PHTO
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Smith

This course is both practical and theoretical and requires research and analysis of photographers’ works, so that students can formulate their own ideas which are then carried out in practical work. It involves a systematic approach that explores and develops ideas, and uses the work of other photographers, shaping them into a cohesive body of practical work. Students are required to have access to high quality digital cameras along with portable backup hard drives, as this subject cannot be completed with inferior or substandard equipment.

Internal Standards: Are worth 4 credits each and these two standards are both a combination of research theory and practical work.

External Portfolio: This is a submission of practical work worth 12 credits in total and is externally assessed. Essentially,this folio is based on the work established in the Internals that are completed during the first two terms of the year. The folio comprises of two A1 panels which show how students have used their chosen photographer models and integrated them into their own work. The work must show a development and a sequence of logical ideas which are investigated, developed and refined to produce finished conclusions.
