Learn how to take and edit photos to use in creative projects for fun and for an audience.
In this course, students will learn about the ways in which photographs are used to tell stories. In the first module, students will learn to ‘read’ a picture by learning some basic visual literacy techniques. They will examine photographs used in print ads and newspaper articles and use photos to inspire their imaginations. Students will then learn some basic photography techniques relating to shots, angles, perspectives and framing to see the ways in which photographs can be used to tell a story. As a final step, they will use their new photography skills and knowledge to tackle some photography challenges.
