Reflections on the course

The second Assignment that I submitted for this course was called ‘A Journey’ and it feels as though I have been on a journey as the course progressed. So it is appropriate to consider where this journey has taken me, where I started as a photographer and where I am now. I find it interesting …

Reflections on Part 6

I was encouraged by the discussion I had with my Tutor about Assignment 6 – particularly the summary statement he made in his feedback that the assignment was “a thoughtful attempt to resolve a challenging concept”. He did, however, add that he thought it would be beneficial for me to add a more in-depth evaluation …

What is Landscape – a final thought.

A trip to the Bonnard exhibition at Tate Modern last week triggered one more thought on the topic of what is landscape. It relates to the issue of whether images with a social or political message can be defined as landscape or should they be labelled social documentary or political images. I have argued before …

What is landscape – further thoughts

The issue of what constitutes a landscape image cropped up again in discussion with my tutor on some of the images I submitted for Assignment 5. He asked whether some of them would be better described as social documentary. I wrote about the subject in this blog, right at the start of the course http://light-writing.co.uk/land/2017/07/12/what-is-landscape/ and …

Reflections on Part 5 of the Course

I found this part of the course frustrating and fascinating in equal measure. Frustrating in trying to get to grips with those elements that were completely new to me (assigning colour and printer profiles for example) as the technology always seemed to beat me – I was sure I had added the profiles correctly, but …

Tutor Feedback and Review

I had been rather pleased with the Critical Review that I submitted for Assignment 4, so initially I was a little disappointed that my tutor found so much to comment on. Having read his report a few times now, and thinking about what he said, I think that I can learn a great deal from …

Part 4: Reflections

I have thoroughly enjoyed this part of the course, I learned a great deal from Assignment 4. Before undertaking the assignment I had a cursory knowledge of photomontage, but for the critical review I undertook a considerable amount of research. This was necessary as i now have a much better understanding of the genre and …

Tutor Feedback on Part 3

I received my tutor’s comments on my work for Part 3, which contained a number of positive comments as well as areas that I need to improve. In the exercises he was complementary about the Ophelia image; but in general terms, and particularly the ‘Brush Factory’ work, he thought that I needed to develop new …

Part 3: Reflections

I had a number of external interruptions to this part of the course, serious enough for me to request an extension to the deadline for submission of the assignment. Fortunately they all seem to be behind me now and I have finally completed the essays and assignment. I enjoyed practising my photoshop skills in the …

Tutor Feedback on Part 2

I was very pleased with the overall comments made by my tutor, particularly that he thinks I have “advanced in your thinking and approach since the last assignment”. There were other positive points too, but I think that you learn most from the ‘area for development’ and it is these that I will concentrate on. …
