Unit 9: Photography Techniques
The aim of this unit is to develop my skills in photography. The unit covers generating ideas for photographic images, producing images and final prints. I will also explore past and current photographic practice, including techniques and styles, in order to inform my own photographic work.
There are lots of different kinds of photography including photo-journalism, advertising, fashion photography, food photography and stills photography for film and television.
