Assignment two in relation to the Assessment criteria points:

1 Demonstration of technical and visual skills – Materials, techniques, observational skills, visual awareness, design and compositional skills. (40%)

 Technical skills displayed include the use of digital camera and associated software along with use of IT skills in pursuit of research resources.

 Visual skills displayed include the seeking of the ‘decisive moment’ in the street photographic aspects of the Assignment i.e. to capture images that were both relevant to the aims of the Assignment and visually/aesthetically interesting.

 2 Quality of outcome – Content, application of knowledge, presentation of work in a coherent manner, discernment, conceptualisation of thoughts, communication of ideas. (20%)

The outcome reflects my consideration of the aims of the Assignment and their expression in a visual format. This expression was helped by the prior completion of two Exercises on the theme of ‘Photographing the unseen’ (i.e. Project 3 Photographing the unseen). These latter Exercises and others Course Work was recorded in my Learning Blog. This Blog also recorded and communicated my work and progress on the Assignment.

3 Demonstration of creativity – Imagination, experimentation, invention. (20%)

Creativity was displayed in the imaginative choice of subject matter photographed and the editing of the accumulated photographs to a coherent set of eight images. Experimentation/invention was in the attempt to seek synergy between disparate visual elements present in a city.

4 Context – Reflection, research, critical thinking. (20%)

Each shoot was followed by a ‘Sketches’ report in my Learning Blog. In these blog entries I critically considered and discussed the images obtained and their applicability to the aims of the Assignment.
