Synopsis

This unit introduces students to digital photomedia within art and design studio practices. It builds sequentially upon the skills and knowledge of both digital processes and photomedia by providing a focus upon creative image production. The unit offers students the opportunity to develop their creative skills through a combination of analogue and digital techniques, exploring lens-based and soft-imaging for print and screen-based output. Demonstrations and tuition are given on the creation of digital photomedia with an increased conceptual understanding of representational issues, visual language and communication.

Objectives

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. skillfully and insightfully acquire, manipulate and process digital images;
  2. explore the range of options and controls available through pixel-based software applications and use of photographic equipment (eg. Digital cameras, scanners) with increasing confidence and proficiency;
  3. produce creative Photomedia images with an increased conceptual understanding of representational issues, visual language and communication;
  4. demonstrate increased technical understanding of demands associated with image-making required across the development, acquisition, creation and production of Photomedia (using analog and digital techniques, lens-based and soft-imaging, print and screen-based output);
  5. display an increasingly personalized artistic expression and sophisticated creative image arts approach which can be pursued at an advanced stage in subsequent Photomedia studios;
  6. observe and employ occupational health and safety principles and rules appropriate to studio practice.
