ASSIGNMENT FOUR: A picture is worth a thousand words.

Nicola South              Student number: 514516

TUTOR REPORT: Tutor report OCA Niki South 514516 Ass 4

MY REFLECTIONS ON FORMATIVE FEEDBACK

STRENGTHS HIGHLIGHTED

  • Extensive research.
  • Powerful analysis.
  • Use of a personal connection.
  • The image chosen for the essay.

AREAS FOR DEVELOPMENT

  • Include more on the composition, my thoughts about it.
  • My tutor suggests that I could have mentioned the way the eye is directed to the main subject, and that I should comment on the light hitting Ghandi’s head spiritually; however re-reading my essay confirms that I have written about the way the viewer’s eye is drawn across the image, and described the “daylight alighting mystically on Gandhi’s head”. I think unfortunately he must have missed these comments, although I accept that I may not have been obvious enough about how this directs the eye to Gandhi. I could have been more explicit however about the image following the rule of thirds.

MY LEARNING POINTS

  • Remember to consider and comment on whether and how an image could be improved when analysing and reading a photograph.
  • To use my learning from this part of the course on reading photographs as I go forward.
  • As my tutor suggest to carry on learning from “the greats” to take my own practice forwards.

POST FEEDBACK ACTIONS

  • Reread the essay, to check whether any changes are needed, though my Tutor suggests I should submit it as it is. Having done so I concluded that I should submit as it is, especially as I found that I have covered the composition points he mentions apart from the rule of thirds (I thought to go back and insert this but decided it would be rather obvious!).
