Level 3 Visual Art Photography
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Blackwell
In Level 3 Photography students will continue studying Digital Photography. The course builds on the student’s understanding of the relevant methods, ideas, and conventions introduced in the previous year but requires a greater depth of analysis and justification of photographic methods. Students will develop their own ideas and themes over the year in consultation with the teacher. Students will explore, research, and be inspired by established photographers photographically. Students are required to communicate both in verbal and written form and to think critically. For the 14 credit external exam, students need to produce a systematic body of work created in and out of class time throughout the year. Students will continue to use Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Adobe Indesign to create a cohesive body of work that cumulates the display of the best work that students have created over the course of the year. Students will work in consultation with their teacher to devise a personalised learning and assessment programme which will compromise of a maximum total of 18 credits. If students did not do Level 2 Photography they might need to concentrate on a learning programme comprising of internals only.
