Students develop and produce two folios, documenting the skill development and knowledge of camera techniques and handling, manual control, composition, lighting, and digital manipulation.
Design Process and Product
Students design and produce a self-directed product that showcases their best photographic skills and techniques for a specified audience. They produce a folio where they research and analyse other practitioners work and products, and plan and develop their work. They problem-solve and evidence production processes and design/product ideas, and evaluate the effectiveness of their processes and final product.

Students investigate, analyse and test the functional characteristics and properties of two or more materials or components, such as camera equipment, camera settings, printing quality of paper, or resolution of image. They report on how this research and testing affects their selection for use in the creation of their product.
Part 2 - Issues Exploration
Students investigate and analyse any ethical, legal, economic and or sustainability issues related to their product.
