What will I learn in this subject?
The National Progression Awards in Photography at SCQF 5 will develop knowledge and understanding in practical photography. Pupils will learn about basic photography techniques including the use of lighting, composition and digital editing and explore photographing people and places.

The course is aimed at those who want to explore their interest in photography and perhaps take it to a more advanced level at college/university. Candidates do not require any previous camera experience, nor do they need to own a camera. There are no entry requirements for this subject.
