Assignment 3 – Tutor Feedback

Feedback on assignment

Demonstration of technical and Visual Skills, Quality of Outcome, Demonstration of Creativity

Technical skills are good; managed to consistently capture sharp images of moving subjects. Have captured interesting expressions. The light has been recorded in a uniform manner.

The Assignment is more of a typological rather than ‘Decisive Moment’; a series of images of people in the same scenario experiencing the same thing. The images counter argue the Decisive Moment due to their similarity.

Coursework

Demonstration of technical and Visual Skills, Demonstration of Creativity

Coursework is of very high standard. The freeze exercise is well thought out, observed and very beautiful.

Research

Context,​ ​reflective thinking, critical thinking, analysis   

Research is accurate, but could be more extensive. The research is mostly technical rather than critical. Although technical analysis is crucial, the images need to be considered more critically also.

Learning Log

Context,​ ​reflective thinking, critical thinking, analysis   

The learning log is easy to navigate.

Reflective thinking is accurate and perceptive; spend time discussing how you considered a task together with analyzing and critically engaging with images.

Suggested reading/viewing

Henri Cartier-Bresson’s essay, The Decisive Moment.

Garry Winogrand’s work.
