Photography Foundations for Art and Design Summary


Photography Foundations for Art and Design by Mark Galer (photographer, educator, and Official Adobe Ambassador)

This is an invaluable study guide for schools and colleges offering photography courses. It provides support and guidance to staff and students with a structured approach to photography based on the principles of Art and Design.

This new edition not only provides an explanation of fundamental photographic techniques but also offers a series of sequential study exercises. The student can therefore adopt an independent learning approach, which can be monitored closely through tutorials. Each study exercise will help build design skills, and teach the student to research, plan and execute work in a systematic manner. A comprehensive list of aims, objectives and resources are detailed so that both staff and students are clear at the outset what they are expected to achieve and where to look for further information. If you are a student or lecturer on GCSE, GNVQ, A Level or BTEC Photography, Art and Design or Media courses then you will find this book of immense value.
