Year 11 Photography Bridging Work
“Photography has enabled me to see things differently. I can capture small features hidden in a piece of architecture or nature, for example, that others turn a blind-eye to. That one photograph will last forever and enable it to be remembered. Year 12 A Level Photography opened up so many different directions for me to pursue in the projects assigned, one of these being the ability to play with light and shadow to convey a variety of emotions and atmospheres. If I had the chance to do things differently I definitely would have incorporated more focus on photo-illustration in my work. It is a great way to unleash your creativity and experiment with your photographs and tell a story within them.” (Kirsty)
The course requires first hand observations and drawing. Students should record their environment in any suitable form. This is a good source of practise to keep creative and actively looking and observing.
It can be shown in any format. It could be a series of loose studies or sketchbook pages or a photographic slide show on a memory stick. Any scale or media can be used.
