Level 3 Photography

Course Description

A practical course where students learn to use the digital camera to visually investigate the world around them. 

Experience at Level 2 Photography is highly recommended as we continue to build students' knowledge and skills to create sophisticated, conceptual work in Level 3.

Working with individually chosen themes, students will concentrate on refining the use of studio lighting and compositional elements to develop their ideas visually. 

Digital applications such as Adobe Photoshop are also used to enhance image quality or to manipulate images in a variety of ways.
