This unit introduces students to the fundamentals of natural and artificial lighting. Through a series of class presentations, demonstrations and practical exercises students will gain the knowledge and skills required to creatively utilise the material of light within the photographic image. The unit also includes an introduction to evaluating and working with ambient natural and artificial lighting through various technical and experimental approaches.
During the unit, we will explore lighting in a number of genres, such as standard portraiture, film noir, landscape and urban photography, and approaches used for visual art, cinema and stage. The history and theory of lighting in relation to significant practitioners will be considered in relation to the creative practice assignments.
