1 Photography 11 - *Approved BAA Course *More admin detail on BAA requirements at end of this document Course Synopsis: This course has been developed to introduce students to digital photography. Students learn to use a DSLR camera to create digital images. In the first three chapters they learn both how to use their cameras and the fundamentals of photography; foundational art principles are introduced in chapter 4 to help bridge both traditional and digital art, and the course is finished off with an in depth look at portraiture and how to conduct an actual photo shoot. Rationale: A large goal of the course is to help students understand how to develop as artists by becoming familiar with observational and skill enhancing studies. As part of the artistic development process the students will participate in self and peer critiques; this will help improve observational skills and identify areas of improvement and excellence. This course focuses on hands on learning with project- based lessons that are fun for the students but maintain a level of difficulty to challenge the student. Instructional Components: direct instruction step by step instruction visual instruction self- critiques peer- critiques teacher- critiques artists interviews forum discussion hands on practice photo projects Slide shows

2 Assessment Components: Category Details Weighting Note taking Detailed notes taken of 15% each lesson and each practice Forum participation peer critiques and 10% encouragements Self- Evaluated Projects Images that are 20% evaluated by the student Teacher Evaluated Images that are 35% Projects Evaluated by both student and teacher Final Projects 3 final projects each 20% with three images TOTAL 100% Learning Resources: Interviews from artist working in the industry Online photography inspiration for different styles Online lesson reinforcements Camera Manuals Work from professional artists Activation Criteria: There are 14 assignments and 5 Chapter note packages, making a total of 19 hand- ins for the course.
