Art of Photography

Let’s Get Started

1 Comment

Yesterday I got properly started on the OCA ‘Art of Photography’ course; my course materials turned up and I had a really good introductory chat with my tutor. I ordered a few of the recommended books:

  • The Photograph as Contemporary Art by Charlotte Cotton
  • Photography: A Critical Introduction by Liz Wells
  • On Photography by Susan Sontag

And I was pleased to see that I got as part of the course materials a copy of:

  • The Photograph: A Visual and Cultural History by Graham Clarke



In the run-up to getting the box of OCA goodies, I’d already started reading lots of the online ‘getting started’ content – the OCA is very good at that kind of thing, I have to say. And I finished the day by looking up a few other students who’ve started the course at about the same time as me, and taking a sneaky look at their blogs.

So it’s feeling very real now! It’s very exciting (if slightly daunting). Wish me luck…
