Photography Tutor: Hanna Tai
Generating images and ideas. Hands-on classes explore the photography basics (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, light direction) and how a combination of these factors can be used to control depth of field, motion blur and image quality. The second phase of the elective focuses on two themes: intervention and perception. Shooting exercises examine the photographic possibilities of documenting objects in different contexts. Photography is used in several ways in the elective: to document and represent, and in processes and presentation. Classes are a combination of practice and theory. Students engage in regular feedback sessions, as well as the critical examination of work by photographers, artists and designers. Ideas and images are developed throughout the semester, contributing towards the creation of a major photography project for final assessment.
