Clarification regarding Photography in Studio Arts Units 3 & 4:
The VCAA State Reviewer advises:
- Students are allowed and indeed, actively encouraged to reshoot as part of their Unit 4 work in Studio Arts. This may include photographing new images and/or re-shooting images originally taken in Unit 3
- Students may only re-use images from Unit 3 if they significantly develop the image for example by recontextualising or reformatting. Advice to students is that if they identify an image during Unit 3 that they wish to use in Unit 4 they should not do any development of that image in Unit 3; they should just ‘pinpoint’ the image as a potential direction and leave it for development in Unit 4
This advice supports the intention of the study design and underlines the exploratory nature of SAT 1 and its contribution to the finished works in SAT 2.
