80038 Photographic Intervention

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.




This subject involves an exploration of photography as a means of consciously intervening in and interpreting the social world as a narrative source. This is done through the exploration and photographic interpretation of the spaces and places people create and inhabit and their relationship to them, through the guise of environmental portraiture. Emphasis is placed on the conscious construction of meaning across still image sequences through subtle techniques of art direction and the manipulation of available light sources. This subject introduces the basic principles of digital photography including file formats, image resolution, colour temperature, contrast control, digital workflow practices, and shooting for various digital output media.
