Case Studies in Photography
Theory, Genres and Practical Activities
This printable book on Photography has a focus on subject matter, camera angles, framing and a more artistic point of view. It is not a resource showing how to use all the different aspects of a camera—there is enough information out there for each type of camera for that!!! I originally put this unit of work together for a staff member who was teaching outside their subject area and I needed something that the students could follow themselves and navigate their way through the course, and it worked!!!!
I copy enough books for one between two in the classroom, but the original image for analysis is shown in full colour on the Interactive whiteboard via this document. I have also copied the photographs and laminated them for students to use in the analysis—the choice is yours.
For each Photographer and Concepts studied, there are practical activities for students to complete. I have had my students keep a digital diary and a hard copy portfolio of their best work.
Check back often at my store as more products are being added frequently.—Happy Snapping!
