This course explores the connections between analogue and digital processing and printing techniques, alongside developing an understanding of the creative and visual potential of black and white photography. Students will produce a portfolio of professional standard prints from negatives or digital files working on a chosen theme.

The aim of this short course is to:
Develop an understanding of the creative and visual potential of black and white photography while exploring the connections between analogue and digital processing and printing techniques alongside a practical ability to present a series of black and white images and critically reflect on the appropriateness of a range of different approaches. Each student will gain skills in interpreting the work of others working in black and white and produce an individual photographic project, employing the skills gained and critically reflecting on the results.

The course is accredited by Cardiff Metropolitan University, to the value of 20 Higher Education credits at Level 4. Students who wish to obtain the accreditation must submit a portfolio and workbook at the end of the course and achieve a Pass grade. Submitting work for accreditation is not compulsory.
