What is Photography?   
Photography-“The art or practice of taking and processing photographs.” (Oxford English dictionary)
·         “On a deeper level photography helps me see the beauty in the world. I feel awe when I see other people’s beautiful photos. It creates an awareness of just how big, diverse and beautiful our planet is. It inspires me by giving me ideas about places I’d like to travel to in the future, or photos that I’d like to take for myself. Someone suggested to me once that photographers, as artists, are privileged to be able to see and record some of the beauty in the world.”-Andrew Gibson.

·         “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”- Aaron Siskind

AS I've missed you!

Whilst you've been revising hard and sitting exams. Your A1 ASFC Photography work has been marked, IVed and mounted for moderation. 
We've all been very busy! 

I don't know about you, but I have missed all your smiling faces. I hope that you guys are all ready to start your A2 year and get back out there taking some great photographs!
Congratulations on all passing AS and now the real work begins.....You all need to start thinking about your independent themes for your unit 3 brief.

Some great past project themes have been quite varied with topics such as Fashion & portraiture, surreal landscape, documentary, fairy tales & folkelaws,
Multiple exposure and lomography.
The options are endless.....only hindered by your imagination!

If you missed the task I set, see the last blog post and try and get a head start.

Get thinking and look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
Have a great weekend.
See you soon
