A Level Photography at The Ridings Federation Winterbourne International Academy

Course description

The Photography course is for those who are keen and interested to learn about all aspects of Photography. This includes looking at both traditional approaches and new technologies. The course is very practical in nature and encourages students to use photography in an artistic and imaginative way. It also explores the theoretical elements of photography through both technical and critical study. This helps underpin knowledge and allows you to make informed choices about how and what you want to photograph. The aim is to use photography as a form of self expression and explore its visual language.

As practical skills are gained, the course involves lots of group critiques and discussion. All are required to participate in these sessions and are actively encouraged to analyse, discuss and evaluate their own work as well as that of others.

This is very much a hands-on and practical course. Photography is a subject that requires your full commitment. You need to be prepared to fully engage in your photography in order to further develop your creative and visual mind. If you enjoy taking and really looking at photographs, have an inquisitive and creative eye, then this course could well be for you.
