On the real exam, you will have to hand in ALL work on the first day of your exam, with no more time to make improvements or add to the project once the exam is finished. With this in mind, Tuesday is the last day of your project and all work must be completed.
Your mock exam time (5 hours) will be spent:
- Producing a series of 3 or more images as your final pieces for the project
- Finishing your essay with the details about the final outcomes
- Any other finishing off/extra experiments if you still have time remaining after the above.
Plan your final series of photographs on a powerpoint.
- How many photos will feature in your series?
- How will they bring together everything that you have experimented with so far?
- How will they link to your artists?
- What images will you be editing? Do you already have photos of a good enough quality?
- What is the concept behind your final images?
- What will the consistencies be? Colour/ model/ location/ Composition/ Editing style etc.
- How will you edit your photos?
Complete a quick peer assessment before you upload your planning. Is there anything else that could be added?
Complete this in your red book, make improvements then review before uploading.
For the mock exam, think of it as a full day to focus on developing your ideas and moving forwards towards mini outcomes.
Create a plan which includes an hourly breakdown of what you hope to achieve.
- Be specific
- What experiments will you do? What annotations will you write up? etc.
- Which artists will you combine and how?
- Which photos will you be editing and why?
- What planning or further research might be useful to have on the day?
It is expected that you produce a good body of work on the day!
Upload your homework photos to the bottom of your Human Figure page in a gallery.
Put the title 'Homework photoshoot inspired by ________ and _______' underneath (with your two chosen artists names in the gaps)
GOING FOR GOLD: Add captions to the 3 best photos in the gallery with a sentence to say why you like the photo, and possibly link to your artist, aiming to use key photography words if you can.
For this task, you are learning how to develop independent ideas by combining the styles of two photographers.
ABOVE your gallery, write a paragraph to explain the two photographers that you have chosen to inspire the rest of your project.
Title: Main Artist Inspiration
Copy and paste then complete these sentences:
Having explored a range of photographers, I have decided to focus the rest of my project on ______ and ______.
I find these artists inspiring because... (BE SPECIFIC AND TALK ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY TECHNIQUES/STYLES!)
Going forwards from this point, I plan to combine the styles of these photographers by...
Underneath your paragraph, add two image blocks, and add a photo of each photographer's work (preferably different images to the pictures you have used previously) to make it clear to the examiner.
Your first combined experiment:
Working with your homework photos (or other photos if you don't have them), create an experiment on photoshop which combines the styles of both chosen photographers.
Upload the full size image below the title 'Combined Experiment', then review it, using these sentence starters:
To create this experiment, I...
I have combined the styles of ______ and ________ by...
Something that works well about the edit is...
To develop further from here I will...
Going for gold
Try to use cover some (NOT ALL!) of these points in your review, expanding with extra sentences where necessary:
USE OF COLOUR
MEANING BEHIND THE PHOTOGRAPH
THINGS YOUR EYES ARE DRAWN TO IN THE PHOTO
HOW THE IMAGE MIGHT BE VIEWED BY THE VIEWER - WHAT MIGHT IT MEAN TO THEM
