Art and Design - Photography AS Level at Parkside School
Do you have a passion for photography? Are you gripped by the power of photographs? AS/A2 level Photography will give you the knowledge to use SLR cameras and digital cameras in an informed manner utilising many different techniques.
You will use a dark room to develop films and print black and white photographs. You will study photographers work from different times and genres exploring their concepts and techniques. Their work will be instrumental in the development of your own ideas.
AS will equip you with solid and diverse skills in the techniques of photography giving you the ability to realise your intentions.
You will need to be extremely proactive, reliable and independent as a lot of this course will be taught outside of the classroom. It is useful to have studied G.C.S.E. Art or Photography but is not an entry requirement. It is important that you have experience, and most importantly, a love of taking photographs. We visit London at the end of Year 12 to visit galleries. While it is not essential to own your own digital S.L.R. camera it would be extremely beneficial.
