This subject introduces students to photography’s role in the practice of interior architecture. Through lectures, workshops and practical assignments the fundamental principles of photography are addressed, practiced and appreciated and provide a sound framework to investigate interior architecture space, mass, movement, function and lighting.

Students develop a practical understanding of fundamental photographic principles, including: composition,exposure, perspective control; methodological research processes; pre- and post-production considerations; the historic and contemporary relevance of photography, and; how the practice and analysis of photography can lead to a better understanding of interior architecture design.

The subject provides a balance between lecture-based learning, studio workshops, tutorial critiques, group interactivity, practical demonstrations and location assignments. Through practice-based research, it reinforces photographic technique whilst developing an understanding and appreciation for photography and its significance to interior architecture.
