My draft presentation is below. I did speak over the slides for our practice run but the audio is not yet added to the Powerpoint presentation. I will be replacing images of the Road to Elgol with more recent work:
I thought it would provide a useful benchmark on my blog to show my improvement and journey when I load the final version in early April.
I had some very helpful comments from fellow students and tutors and there was much useful discussion throughout our Webinar. Some of my learning points and ideas are listed below:
Learning points for me:
- Presentation was concise and clear and interdisciplinary analysis was good
- Put a lot more photographs into the presentation and less words, particularly at the beginning It was noted that there was only one photograph in the first four minutes of the presentation!
- My response: Yes, I agree. One of the main reasons for a limited number of images was that I am struggling with the size of my presentation file to upload for the Webinar. I haven’t yet uploaded the presentation from Powerpoint to Keynote so I hope I can then compress the file more efficiently and add more images.
- Talk about photographers that have and may influence your future practice. Also look at photographers that work in Scotland
- My response: Yes, I agree. I did a blog on this but hadn’t included in my presentation. I think I might also include Frans Lanting, Vincent Munier and Martyn Colbeck
Ideas I liked from other presentations:
- Add quotes
- Liked collages of photographs although not everyone did
- Review the templates in Keynote that might be better than my current black background
- Consider possible output for my Research Project – will it be an exhibition or could it also include a Photo Book
- Perhaps put more feelings and passion into my presentation
Thank you to my tutors and fellow students for their constructive comments.
