General introduction to the camera and how it works. Looking at relationship between iso/apeture/speed. Introduction to framing, composition and reading/understanding light source and temperature.
Discussion about sequencing a body of work, project/series based. Outlining a project focus and understanding the elements that will create a narrative.
Practical application of above in the surrounding area of the school. Analysis of the groups images by the group. As a weather alternative we could also run a portrait section to the course. This would include basic lighting techniques and practice with models. One could expand this to be included in the previous mentioned parts of the course.
