We are going to focus on the parts of the badge below and will have an online exhibition on my website.

I will be posting more videos to help you through the badge - so keep your eyes peeled!

  • Produce six black and white photographs, based on a theme of your choice. Explain the steps you took to create them and the impact of using black and white as an alternative to colour images.
    You could produce high quality prints on photographic paper or present them on screen.
  • Show that you know the main settings on a digital camera or a smartphone camera.

    This should include focus and exposure control, and flash settings. Explain the impact of shutter speed and aperture size on the image.

  • Describe what accessories are available to use with digital cameras or smartphone cameras.

  • Edit a selection of your images, using editing software on a computer or using an app on a smartphone.

    This could include cropping, colour, contrast or light levels. Explain what you have changed and how it improved your image.

  • Diagnose typical faults that happen at the photographing or editing stages, such as over or under exposure and high or low contrast.

    Explain how to reduce camera shake and how to respond to subject movement.

  • Show that you know how to care for a digital camera or smartphone camera.
