NQ and City & Guilds Photography

City & Guilds group are doing the Darkroom Printing unit. During the first week I covered health and safety in the darkroom and demonstrated the process of making a print from a negative. 4 students successfully made their first print in the darkroom while the remainder of the class worked through activities in a booklet on monochrome printing. Students have to make six prints which must belong to a specific theme. Next week we’re going to start taking portrait and group photos, concentrating on using available light and reflectors.

The NQ Photography group are doing Intro to Digital Photography D0F711 and Digital Imaging D7yF12. We looked at camera hardware, features and terminology and also discussed a series of good and bad photographs, with students voting for their favourite photos and justifying their choices. In Digital Imaging we used Photoshop to perform basic adjustments to a series of photographs, adjusting brightness/contrast, colour balance, sharpening/blurring and also cropping. Next time we’ll be looking at the software involved in the digital photography process and moving on to more complex Photoshop manipulations.
