Grades – Photography and Social Media
The results and feedback for the Tas Uni course were released today!
Here are my results and feedback from tutor Jessica.
Project 1 – dropbox: Good Pass.
Thank you for submitting your work for Project 1 and well done.
You have shown a very keen engagement with this project, exploring multiple ways to both interpret and execute the selfie theme. Your explorations have involved lots of documentation of your thoughts, experiments with techniques and design and editing. Your final three images are clever and well-justified. They convey your intentions well, incorporating the techniques that you have both learned and endeavoured to master throughout the course and are all visually very striking. I believe I have already said this in my critique, but I really like your lighthouse selfie. That is a really lovely image and so multi-faceted. All yours images are successful in this way. The more you look, the more you see. This is a wonderful technique to have mastered.
Your digital journal is also extensive and a great back up to your work. It nicely highlights your processes while analysing your own, and others work. It shows a clear path from where you began, to where you are now in submitting which is great to see. Perhaps a few more images of other photographers images that are inspiring to you or similar to your own would have helped to further contextualise your work, but apart from that – great work.
Project 1 – Critique -Group 8: Good Pass.
Well done on completing this component of the task. You have very successfully contributed to the discussion board by uploading a range of creative and intriguing images for critique. These show a thorough investigation into your own ideas for a story. You have also shown consideration for the feedback you received from myself and your peers by actively showing your changes as a result of this advice given.
The feedback you provided to your peers was both insightful and constructive. You offered very positive reinforcement and made suggestions for how they might enhance their work. Your comments were considered and extensive, showing an interest for engaging with other artist’s ideas and processes.
Project 2 – dropbox: Good Pass.
Thank you for submitting your work for Project 2 and well done.
Your work has progressed in a very sophisticated way since the beginning of this unit. You have shown your ability to explore your own interests, push your own limits and acknowledge and actively take on the advice of your peers. Your final selection of images are very successful. You have cleverly explored a theme that plays right into the unit’s overall focus. You have also chosen a theme that has allowed you to explore many different aspects and techniques in photo-making. Your images are both documentary-like in nature, presenting a study of human nature, while also being studies in viewpoint, perspective and composition. The way you have captured your subjects as they use technology creates a very interesting dialogue between the viewer and the subject as we are viewing them through technology also. This makes them particularly successful for me.
Your journal is extensive and very engaging. You have documented your processes well, offering insights into your thoughts as you have progressed. What I would like to have seen is a little more contextual analysis – that is comments on images and photographers from photographers that you admire. This would have benefited you in the formation of your ideas.
Project 2 – Critique -Group 8: Good Pass.
Well done on completing this component of Project 2. You have successfully participated in the discussion board by uploading a range of original and experimental images for critique and by providing us with a detailed recount of the ideas and processes behind your work. It is good to see such detailed comments to accompany each image so that we are directed on how to correctly read the image. Nice work.
Your feedback on the work of your peers is well-informed, constructive and professional. You have provided positive feedback and detailed analysis of their images as well as made suggestions as to how they might improve. It is great to see that you took the time to comment on each of their individual images and offered your thoughts.
