Just in case anyone here is interested what exactly you do when studying A level photography, this is my latest project. (You do 4 of these projects, in the two years).

Yes, the photos are rather random. You don't get a LOT of choice when it comes to what you do...

My A level photography project: unit3.cameronfisher.co.uk

Strictly a work in progress, as it is missing a FAIR bits from it.
As I speak, it is worth about a C grade if I am lucky :p

I am 'supposed' to have it finished in the next couple weeks, before christmas, but that isn't going to happen :p
Hopefully, before the summer it will be finished though :)

Yeah! I was looking at your post, some pretty good ones there!

Did you do yours last year? I think I recognise the 'Evidence of human presense' title :)

I've been looking at photography courses at my local college, never learnt so would be good to have a full understanding of the workings of a camera and it features. Most of my photography I guess is trial and error.

Yeah, have to say Scott, that's probably the best thing I learned in the A-level!
Dunno about your course Cam, but in ours we had a complete look at the inside of the camera, how all the parts link up and work, what everything mechanically does inside and the differences in the actual construction of film and digital.
We did it as the first unit in our "technical workbook" along with the theory of what makes a good photograph.
That first uni taught me 80% of what I needed to know, was brilliant stuff!

Just look at what you actually do on the course. the GCSE course I did, we didn't really learn anything! We just lookd at a few photogrophers, and used pin-hole cameras!

Pin-hole cameras are great fun! HERE is a guide on how to make one! It is definatley worth trying, and you get some really nice photo's at the end!

A simpler way is to use an old tin. Simply paint the inside matte black, and make a pin whole in the front. Use some black insulation tape as the shutter, and use light-sensitive paper, instead of film. (This will require a dark room though)
