This course will build on your photographic skills and explore the language and history of photography. You will learn to capture movement and make a powerful series of images on your chosen theme. You will be introduced to darkroom practice and digital post production to make a series of professional standard photographic prints.

The aim of this short course is to:

Develop an ability to apply photographic techniques in the making of images and explore a variety of photographic print processes. This course will develop a sound knowledge of photographic materials, alongside an ability to undertake projects that can demonstrate a personal approach to picture making. Through critical reflection on their own photography and the work of others, students will develop a further understanding of the visual and cultural implications of photography. It provides practical knowledge in both chemical and digital darkroom techniques including exposure, contrast and colour control in the processing and production of photographic prints. Each student will produce an individual photographic project, employing the skills gained whilst 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.
