Course Content
Students complete three folios in which they research and develop various in-camera techniques and document their learning. Within these folios, students investigate how to achieve skills such as short and long depth of field and various compositional layouts. The Design Process and Product Folio requires students to research, analyse and investigate other artists' work in relation to their own creative interests, sustainable/ethical practices, image techniques/formats and equipment used. In addition, students include detailed timelines, plans and documentation of learning processes before presenting their finalised images for display.
