Reflection-Evaluation: Assessment

Yesterday was the last session for the Photographic Media Major Study module and this provided us with all of the information that we would need to help us produce our Final Presentation and to look back and be able to reflect and evaluate our work that we have produced over the last couple of months for this particular module.

The Major Study module has enabled us to be able to produce a substantial individual project which will be forming the centre of our professional portfolio. The module’s delivery has involved a series of symposia together with individual tutorials with specialists.

Yesterday’s session made sure that we had an understanding of the principles and are able to reflect in developing independence and autonomy. We need to have the ability to critically evaluate our own practices at Masters level. It is important that we have knowledge of the requirements of module assessment and we demonstrate where these have been met.

During the session we worked in pairs / groups and looked at the criteria that had to be met within the brief and discussed points of importance and questions that we should be considering when producing our Presentation and Evaluation.

We will be producing:

  • Reflective evaluation of our personal methodologies of practice; knowing, making, creating (500 words).
  • Identification and evaluation of your new learning over the project (500 words).
  • Presentation (15 mins)

Shoot & Reshoot

Today I decided to go out and do a reshoot of the Schlumberger Gould Building on the West Site in Cambridge, as the weather proved to give me the perfect setting. I am hoping that I can obtain a better image from this shoot and will be experimenting with stitching the images together tomorrow. I also decided to try and shoot at other locations. The first location was at Madingley Reservoir. Despite it’s name there seemed to be no evidence of any water or a reservoir that I could see but I did not venture in too far as there were warnings of CCTV in operation and I was not sure how safe the area was. I primarily went there because I had spotted some kind of transmission mast and this is what I was interested in. I also travelled to Burwell, where there is a sub station but I did not end up shooting there as there were too many obstacles in my way, mainly trees.

I shall be stitching and editing the images from the shoot tomorrow to see if I have obtained anything that will be worthwhile keeping for my final project.
