Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Package version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • use a stills digital camera to capture photo images that meet specific requirements
  • use digital software to enhance images to meet the quality and look required by the projects
  • store images and equipment according to workplace requirements.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • outline basic techniques that are used to plan shots
  • identify features of standard digital cameras and explain how these impact on a camera’s photographic capability
  • summarise elements and principles of design for photo images
  • describe how light constrains and lighting enhances photographic image capture
  • describe pixel count (megapixels) and how this relates to the resolution and output size of the final image
  • describe how metadata is used to categorise photographic images
  • outline cleaning techniques for cameras and accessories
  • identify work health and safety requirements when using screens and keyboards for extended periods of time.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

  • digital stills camera and accessories to allow downloading of images
  • digital imaging software
  • manuals to support software.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
