Photography Level 2 

Course outline
The primary aim of the course is to provide Year 12 students with the skills and knowledge to enable them to continue into Year 13 with confidence and a clear understanding of the elements and principles of photography.

During the year, students will be provided with specific photography tasks that build on each other in a logical, sequential manner. These will begin with quite simple research and generative tasks, progress into introducing students to computing in digital photography and then continue on to more complex problems that require greater computing skill and understanding of digital photography.

Achievement Standards
During terms one and part of term two we offer 2.2 and 2.3 as a combined internal standard worth in total eight credits.  These inform 2.4 (also known as 'folio boards') which is worth twelve credits and begins partway through term two. 2.4 is externally assessed and is due before exam leave halfway through term four. Photography as a subject finishes before exam study leave begins. 
These three compulsory standards form the structure of the course. Students will receive copies of the standards and assessment resources at the beginning of each standard.  

This year 2.5 may be offered (students can only receive these credits once, so they cannot sit for it in another art subject). We are working representatives from the local council to finalise details at this point in time. More information will be provided once it is all confirmed. This may mean internal dates change. 

2.2 Use drawing methods to apply knowledge of conventions appropriate to photography.
Internal. 4 credits 

2.3 Develop Ideas in a related series of drawings appropriate to established photography practice.
Internal. 4 Credits

2.4 Produce a systematic body of work that shows understanding of art making conventions and ideas within photography.
External. 12 Credits. 

2.5 Produce a resolved work that demonstrates control of skills appropriate to cultural conventions.
Internal. 4 Credits
