Student wildlife photograph of a bird

Photography uses light to reproduce an image.

The three ways to do this are through:

  • traditional photography
  • digital photography
  • camera-less photography

Most photographs are created using a camera but some, such as photograms and cyanotypes, don't need one.

This guide will look at the things you should consider when creating and using your own photographic images in your National 5 Art and Design portfolio.
