Release 1

This version first released with ICP Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • find and use information relevant to the task from various sources
  • set up a digital camera correctly and safely
  • use a digital camera to:
  • preview and capture THREE digital images
  • transfer images to a computer
  • use relevant software to produce final images that meet job 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:

  • identify and explain the key features of the digital camera that impact on the quality of the photographic image
  • determine the safety requirements for handling and storing lithium batteries
  • explain how to transfer and store images from a camera to a computer list and describe ways that photographic images can be altered or enhanced electronically
  • explain why the required delivery mode is important when preparing a photographic image.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the digital media technologies field of work and include access to:

  • a digital camera
  • computer hardware and software
  • photographic equipment and materials.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
