“This course is designed to enable you to make a body of work suitable for a Photography Folio for NCEA Level Two or Three. You will work on a theme and idea of your own choice supported by an Inquiry into established, reputable artists and their own work. Studying other artists, the conventions they use, their techniques, processes and thinking is essential to let you refine your own ideas and practical work. We will regularly discuss a wide range of issues, look at how artists have reacted to the world around them and I will try to challenge and excite your thinking and your work with a camera.You will need to be prepared to work autonomously outside the classroom, communicate clearly and meet deadlines. You will need access to a laptop or computer with Photoshop, and if you have your own digital camera with a manual function, bonus!
During Term Three we will be focussing on the development of ideas and imagery for Panel Two of your Folios. You will also be expected to resolve your imagery for Level Two Folios and begin to regenerate ideas and images if you are completing a Level Three Folio.
There will be formative assessment deadlines posted in Google Classroom for both levels. Level Two will be around Week 8 and Level Three Week 6. It is really important to meet these deadlines if you want to successfully complete a folio as there is virtually no time in Term Four other than for final printing and folio assembling/layout.
This course will continue during 3.2.
