August Tutor EYV meet up

Thirty second take away

  • Plough on with projects – keep momentum going when you can, or it will be a 7 year course.
  • Don’t over think it – experiment and enjoy it. Don’t stall worrying if ‘right’.
  • Keep assessment in mind and push for the earliest submission so not hanging over you as you move through the course.
  • Use for the most up to date literature.
  • Check the new 140820 assessment guidelines
  • Keep going with blog for reflection and research
  • Composition is about more than the rules.

Action Points:

  • Look up assessment submission dates – Nov assessment = August request date, September submission.
  • Use these dates to plan assignment schedule
  • Follow student blogs for support, examples and 2 way feedback
  • Look up the exemplars from the back of EYV book to see good examples of first level studies.
  • Look up Vimeo Channel for tutors assessing work

Reflective Outcome – blog posts – journalisitc – always done well, working by yourself you’re naturally reflective.

Reserach and photography is what speaks.

Assessed tutor and second tutor – assess with fresh ideas, looking in depth at work, not quickly

Formative assesmment – feed back as you go

summative – course assesmnet at the end – marks on this

Exemplars – good work – look at others work given in EYV olders

Vimeo channel – videos of tutors at assesment showing work – 3 exemplars

ex 1.2 point – subjects nears the edge of the frame get more energy and is given power

proximity – points together to form a group

continituy – related subkjects even when not together


eye movement throughout the image – direction, lines, subjects, light, space

framng for the point – the point is the purpose of the image

closure – gestalt – brain fills gaps – creates a circle

dnt cliche and be boring with the same idea / imitation – i.e. a person walking through a void

connectedness – homma (takahashi) suburbia

Diane Arbus

Chris Steele Perkins – layers – DOF

edit is a big part – you miss images by not seeing what you were looking for – you’re looking for what you think is a good shot and not what youve seen before
