New Learning Journal - PWDP

I have started a new Learning Journal for PWDP.

For personal reasons I am not able to start the module, but I am able to follow a few initiatives that may be incorporated at a later date.

Assessment - A Milestone

Today is a milestone as I am now half way towards my degree with the official notification of credits, breakdown of marks and advice for further study.

Advice for further study 

 " There is much evidence of a strong progression and self-critisism that should be built upon and will lead to a personal vision and a sense of visual achievement. A continuing engagement with the context and theory underlying contemporary photography practise will pay dividends"

For the time being I am reflecting on the experience and between modules will continue to read widely and visit exhibitions where possible. I need to return to some of my own work, using the 5x4 camera for landscape work (not possible during the module as there were issues with workflow) and use the rangefinder whenever possible as I enjoy the feel of the work more than that of the DLSR. I may shoot some more stock, which a year ago seemed unlikely. Stock is a practice technique, similar to a golfer on the driving range. You make photographs that are technically perfect but there is very little editing or selection.

It is unlikely that there will be any further postings on this journal. It has served its purpose quite well and I hope has provided some interest to the various readers, who I see from the data are worldwide. So for now thank you all for your comments, encouragement and support when it was looking bleak (Ass 4) and good luck with your own photography.

Assessment - Notes for Assessors

Having followed the URL on the CD or in the assessment file you should have arrived here.

The navigation of this Learning Journal is based on the Index on the right hand side using Labels.

The various assignments and projects are listed together with other categories covering exhibitions, reading etc in alphabetical order.

All of the photographs will enlarge for better viewing with a mouse click. The differences in monitor gamma / calibration may introduce slight variations to how you view the images. The photographs were prepared using an Eizo CG241W monitor calibrated with a Eye One Display 2 with screen brightness set at 100cd/m2.

Assignment photographs are included in the Learning Journal to illustrate the text. None of these images are included here for assessment. Assignments have all been reprinted and these prints are contained in the print box for assessment purposes.
