Photography

 

Tab 1

Photography         order and disorder 1

 

The photography course was introduced to the school in January 2014 and is proving very popular. It is taught in recently refurbished rooms and the course leaders are continuing to make investment that will ensure success.  Recent investment includes computers, an ungraded and faster school server, printers, lighting and a green screen

At the start of each new project, you will be given a theme and a brief that outlines what you will need to do. You will learn the processes involved in photography and you will become confident in developing ideas. Much of the work is computer generated and you will learn about Photoshop as well as other photography packages.

Course specifications: www.edexcel.com

The course consists of 60% coursework and 40% Externally Set Assignment. Coursework is graded on four assessment objectives and you will be expected to produce an A2 folder throughout the two years in order to evidence your developing skills and ideas.

 

 

 

Assessment Objective One: Critical and contextual studies (25% of coursework grade)

You will learn about the work of leading artists and photographers whose ideas and working methods influence you. Although most of the research is completed visually, you will also need to support your ideas in writing. You will get help from your teachers to ensure that you feel confident about developing clear understanding about this objective.

 

Assessment Objective Two: Developing ideas and uses of materials (25% of coursework grade)

This objective is arguably the most exciting and will introduce you to new techniques: you will be offered the opportunity to develop your ideas digitally, and will become confident about using a range of cameras to their full potential. You will learn about imagery and will develop skills valuable to the photographic industry.

 

Assessment Objective Three: Recording from a range of experiences (25% of coursework grade)

You will record images from a range of experiences and learn different methods of producing high quality images. Trips will also be offered in order to help you develop an interesting and varied portfolio of work.

 

Assessment Objective Four: Producing a final outcome (25% of coursework grade)

All of your ideas are developed into a final product that is completed digitally and will reflect the work you have developed throughout your folder.

The Externally Set Assignment is issued in February of Year 11 and you will be given approximately ten school weeks to complete a folder of work. The exam itself is ten hours and will take place over two days. It is graded in exactly the same way as the coursework.

 

Studying this course will provide you with many opportunities including: access to level 3 BTEC courses or A Levels, apprenticeships in the photography industry and further education in digital studies or media. It also helps in any course where it is beneficial to produce photographs; these courses include hairdressing, floristry, construction, gardening, teaching, fashion and journalism to name a few.
