Year 10 BTEC Media: Unit 9 Drawing with Light Photographic Techniques
Home Learning:Make a post to your blog describing thetechniques used to create a photographic lightdrawing. Use as much subject speciﬁc language aspossible. Evaluate your progress in today’s lesson.
StarterMake a list of theequipment you mightneed to create thisimage. Feedbackand discuss.
Today’s Lesson:How do you createan image like thisusing photographictechnology?
ModellingChoose 2 volunteersDemo use of equipment -camera, ﬂash, light pen. Describeprocess for selecting a longexposure in manual modeDescribe relationship betweenambient and ﬂash light
Group/Pair WorkIn pairs or small groups, experiment with availabletechnology to create light drawings.P2 = use photographic technology to partly realiseintentionsM2 = use photographic technology competently to mainlyrealise intentionsD2 = use photographic technology skilfully to createphotographs which clearly achieve intentions
ModellingDemo use of offcamera ﬂash tocreate multipleportraits
Group/Pair WorkIn pairs or small groups, continue to experiment withavailable technology to create light drawings and multipleportraits.P2 = use photographic technology to partly realiseintentionsM2 = use photographic technology competently to mainlyrealise intentionsD2 = use photographic technology skilfully to createphotographs which clearly achieve intentions
Independent LearningCapture the images from the photoshoot.Organise in an Event in iPhoto and edit to correct exposure.Upload images to your Flickr account. Title and tag appropriately.Create a new Set entitled ‘Light Drawings’.Embed slideshow in blog and on relevant page in your ePortfolio.Describe the techniques you used to create the images andevaluate their quality using an appropriate tool e.g. Audioboo,XtranormalP3: review strengths and weaknesses of own workM3: describe strengths and weaknesses of own work with somedetail and with reference to appropriate illustrative examplesD3: evaluate strengths and weaknesses of own work withreference to precise and detailed illustrative examples
Review and ReﬂectionShare successful and less successful light drawingimages created by group - discuss qualitiesWhat have we learned about ambient and ﬂash light?What have we learned about the ways in which SLRcameras can record the behaviour of light?
