    Hey, I was wondering what do you need to do to gain the best marks in GCSE photography coursework and exams? What are the most important things to focus on? And also, is the coursework done in Year Ten really relevant to the final grade?

    You need to reference to you theme and unit and annotate the majority of your photographs. Say what you don't like, do like, focal point, what is in the background, formal elements etc.. Here are some sentence starters/ questions

    This is my photo of...in...at... Why did you choose to take it? How does it link to your project? The idea I wanted to explore...
    The formal elements that makes this image work are...
    View through
    Close up / Detail/ filling the frame
    Abstract
    Viewpoint
    Perspective
    Light and shadow / Contrast
    Multiple Images
    Texture
    Line
    Repetition
    Reflections
    Colour
    Because...
    The focal point is... In the background...
    How have u enchanted it?? I have manipulated it using Photoshop by... Because...
    How to improve...

    I'm year 11 and with the AQA board and your coursework is 60% of your actual GCSE so take it seriously but try not to over stress.
