BTEC Results – Finally!!

I received my results today for my Level 2 Certificate in Photography, and I am very pleased as I got  Distinctions in all three units of “Photographic Techniques and Applications”,”Experimental Photography” and “Creative Camera Techniques”.  I doubt I will go any further with this sort of education, but I will probably do some other courses at some time in the future.  It was generally a good year, although there were times when I felt there was way too much paperwork to be done!

BTEC – ‘Magic Card’

A percentage of our shots had to be ‘digitally manipulated’.  It wasn’t clear what this meant.  Most of my shots I do are manipulated in some way.  In fact, as I shoot mostly in RAW I have to do some sort of manipulation.  This photo completed for ‘Games’ was more of the classic manipulation variety.  Three layers. Me, the front of the card and the back of the card with transparency added in to get the see through effect.

BTEC – ‘Multi-Monopoly’

This was completed for “Games”.  I wanted to get macro-shots of all the tokens in a monopoly set.  As colour is an import part of the Monopoly board, I wanted to incorporate all the colours too.  As part of the digital manipulation requirement I used  Photoshop to build the final image.

Multi-MonopolyIn case you weren’t sure which version of Monopoly this is from, it is the “Stoke-on-Trent” version.

BTEC – ‘What’s Next??’

Somewhat confusing title.  The ‘What’s Next??’ refers to the title of the picture below… not what I’m going to do now that I’ve finished my BTEC.

I’ve finished my Level 2 in photography which I have been doing for the past year. although I still seem to be waiting for the results!   For the final portfolio we had to submit 15 photos based on three categories.  I chose “People in the Countryside”, “Games” and “Drinks”.

Over the next couple of weeks or so I intend to upload the pictures, so you can see what I ended up with.  I hope you like them.  I was more pleased with some that others, and did end up with quite an eclectic mix I think.

‘What’s Next??’ was completed for ‘People in the Countryside’.  The aim was to capture a social documentary photo of a local volunteer group,  (of which I’m chairman).  I was trying to get a range of photos in this category, so this one was unplanned.
