Subject Description
This subject will focus on the expanding role of photography in new technologies and media, the still image, the projected image (video) and sound. Camera, lighting and digital video editing workshops will be scheduled throughout the session. It will focus on the way that contemporary photographers work between the photographic still and moving image. Students will be introduced to program material via lectures and structured class exercises that will provide students with the required technical, formal and conceptual skills to undertake the self-directed projects. Students will develop independent learning and scholarship through class projects, visual experiences, ideas and expressive practice.
