There are no prerequisites for this course. Students will be able to borrow School’s digital SLR cameras, video equipment, microphones and tripods, however, they may also use their own equipment.

Course Description
In the practical component, students integrate both black and white and digital photography as well as film in the development of a folio and explore a range of photographic and movie making processes. With a focus on design elements they are introduced to composition and a variety of ways to manipulate image using the camera, darkroom techniques and new media technologies. In the appreciation component, students develop research and analysis skills with a focus on specific artists and styles studied. They will gain an understanding of issues in relation to the production, distribution and consumption of media products. The study can be continued either through VCE Media (Units 1-4), or IB Visual Arts. It may also be used as a foundation for VCE Studio Arts or VCE Visual Communication Design.
