Students will build fundamental skills in photographic equipment.
They will learn about still and also motion and post-production software alongside a working proficiency and knowledge of the industry.
Students will begin to think about their own practice and build confidence in image generation and platform selection.
Students will gain a greater understanding of equipment and software such as Leica M, Phase One and Hassleblad and Linhof medium format cameras.
They will think about the specialist areas of photography and where they are applied.
This will allow them to enhance their practice and develop their own approach to the digital creative work.
We set a variety of live project briefs, and encourage students to take up placements in industry.
Students will bring their learning together in a final major digital photography project, ready for exhibition at the degree show.
By this stage many students will already be published and working on projects in the creative industries.
Alongside this, they will create a self-initiated, experimental brief that addresses their own personal creative direction, and will form part of your principal working portfolio.
We ask students to show your contextual studies research and thinking in a long form dissertation.
Successful completion of this course can lead to postgraduate study in MA Design Communication Technology at Ravensbourne.
