from "how to control your camera", "scientific, clinical and personal injury photography" through to "personal development planning" and "continuing professional development"
Introduction to photography
The aim of this course is to cover the technical theory behind how to take control of your camera.
So you decide what your photographs will look like rather than your camera.
Personal Injury Photography
This specialisation has also been called medico-legal photography, scar photography, injury photography. Aspects of the work are forensic if for the civil rather than the criminal courts.
At its broadest I would call it "Photography of the living for legal purposes".
This is also called Blacklight photography and is one of the easiest yet challenging scientific photographic techniques.
Invented by Professor Robert Woods the specialised glass used in many discos and nightclub lights causes natural and man made materials to emit light, termed fluorescence.
Anatomy & Physiology
Learning how to become a clinical or personal injury photographer means that you need to learn about the body.
Not just the external surface anatomy but what goes on underneath for photography of surgical procedures, pathology and clinical conditions.
Personal Development Planning (PDP)
The aim of this course is to help you manage and support your learning. There is a direct link with continuing professional development (CPD)
This course helps you review, plan, take action and reflect on your development and outcomes.
This covers many scientific applications of photography but stresses the principles which can then be applied to even more specialist areas. It looks at lighting techniques, close-up, photomacrography and photomicrography, infrared and ultraviolet direct and fluorescence and much more.
