Photography 20

Photography 20 Saskatchewan Curriculum

Philosophy and Rationale
Every day people are bombarded by photographic images. A better understanding of the skills and equipment used to create images can enrich the lives of students. Students enrolled will have the opportunity to learn about the evolution of photography from pin hole to digital cameras, experiment with equipment and develop a critical awareness of good photographic techniques. The field of photography can lead to a variety of employment opportunities and to a very satisfying personal interest. The aim of the Photography 20 is to provide students with opportunities to acquire knowledge and develop skills used in the photography and graphic arts industries and to become familiar with career opportunities in these industries.
