NCEA Level 3 Photography

Subject Description

This course will focus on digital processes and Photoshop techniques, and the potential for inclusion of various Fine Arts practices.

The work developed for assessment for both internal and external assessments will be project based investigations around themes. These themes will use a variety of interesting professional Artist Models to help guide to a successful body of practical work in each unit. Independent research is a key aspect in developing work at Level 3.

You will need to have your own digital camera with aperture priority settings, a USB stick of 2GB, and a keen and motivated attitude.
