Why study Photography GCSE?
Photography is a practical subject that teaches an understanding of how to compose an image, the use of a camera to create a visual representation of a topic along with the skills to evaluate and appreciate design. This course will also develop skills in ICT, written analysis and digital manipulation.
What skills will I need?
- Good presentation & language skills
- Sound ICT Skills
- Enthusiasm for the subject
Also, consistently good effort in lessons and a positive attitude to improvement. We aim to move you towards a higher level in Y10 and improve your grade considerably throughout Y11. It is important that you want to develop your skills to a high level.
You will be expected to work outside of lesson time, either at home or on the computer after school as good quality work takes time to complete. If you are committed to succeeding in the subject, this should not be a problem.
What happens in lessons?
Taught as a group as well as an individual, one to one mini-tutorials will guide you to a higher level of achievement. You will learn to work with different materials and techniques and develop projects within your portfolio. There are many high quality examples to help. This will be a creative and individual process.
