The S3 Photography Course is practical and experiential, and the key focus is creativity. Pupils will learn about basic photography techniques including the use of lighting, composition and how to use the settings on a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera. They will creatively explore their ideas through different photography genres,
such as landscape, portraiture and still life. The course offers opportunities for personalisation and choice with pupils planning and delivering projects. Learners have opportunities to lead and plan personal projects, communicating their thoughts and ideas. They will learn how to process a photoshoot by selecting and presenting their best work. They will develop their IT skills by organising and managing their work and using editing software. Pupils will also and evaluate the work of other photographers. There will be opportunities to collaborate with others when setting up photoshoots.
