Course content includes: - Introduce the use of studio lighting to help you gain valuable skills to produce images that have impact with lighting. - Work towards the independent use and exploration of lighting in ambient, continuous artificial and flash all guided by your tutor. - Gain confidence in your independent photography work. - Create a mini portfolio of your work through the online VLE - Some weekly classroom critiques of your work uploaded to the college VLE, which is a great way of you learning from your peers along with advice from the tutor. Additional support and feedback is also given through use of the College's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), where you will have the opportunity to record your learning, upload your assignment task images for feedback and view the work of your peers. The VLE offers you a great opportunity to extend your own learning throughout the week, along with access to learning materials used during the course. The sessions will be run as a mixture of theory and practical ones allowing students to further explore and understand the creative potential of their cameras, whilst using the artistic potential of composition and lighting.
