Blended learning for week starting 10th Oct - David Bailey

This week in conjunction with the new assignment - "Old School" you're to research David Bailey.


I would like you to pay particular attention to the fact that all of these images here have been shot on square format film using a TLR camera.

I also want you to explore and research aspects of 'Class' with regards to Bailey and explain why this is significant so use the 'Soico-economics' prompt. See the prompts here

Make sure the main image you use on the analysis page includes the use of the black film edge as this is significant.

Identify the camera he uses, use an image of Bailey with the camera and do some research into the camera and explain what it is about this camera and his approach that make his images 'Typical' of the mid 1960's.

Remember as you are now second year students you do need to up your game - you need to approach your work with increased maturity, depth, commitment and effort. As with last year, you should strike a balance between the use of images and written content e.g. a 50/50 split.
You should use the prompts in the side bar here to generate the written content, remembering the essence of this unit is 'Location Photography' so use the prompts that relate to commenting on the work with regards to...

(1). Light and how it used, its qualities and characteristics and the problems that arise from using daylight and artificial light.
(2). The equipment used - camera format, lens focal length, field of view, depth of field, discuss in your analysis what bearing these might have on the images.
(3). Media - are the images shot on film or digital, what difference might that make and how are the images used at the end of the process - are they exhibited if so research to see where the images are sold and what materials/media they are produced on (MTP's).
(4). The location - accessibility issues, privacy, private land, public spaces and the public. Country, region, laws, H&S.
(5). Image design and construction - elements of the image - foreground and background relationships; rules of thirds, composition.
(6). Context - who is the photographer inspired/influenced by - Use images to show similarities.
(7). Operational context - what kind of photography is it, how is it used, where is it seen, who is its audience?


Do not forget to collate a bibliography and if you use quotes reference your quotes and ensure they are identified as quotes within your work. See here for guidance on producing a bibliography

Blended learning both years BTEC and UAL

Hello,

Here's this weeks Blended learning task - this is applicable to both years...


Both UAL and BTEC students are working with MTP's at the moment. So this weeks task is to learn and then summarise details relating to digital file types.

JPEG's versus Raw Files

Writing this up - as much as you can before you watch the video below, write down what you already know about the difference between JPEG's and RAW files. Having done that, then watch the video below, make notes about the key points that he raises in the video and then write up a coherent summary of the point made.


Double click on the video.

https://www.slrlounge.com/workshop/dynamic-range-and-raw-vs-jpeg/
 
To take the work further to increase the chances of attaining the higher grades...
 
  • Look into TIFF and PSD's.
  • Get a small JPEG file and in Photoshop crop the image (A face) and then open and save it as a new file again and again and you'll start to see how the image degrades every time you save it as a new file. Produce a before and after version showing how the JPEG file degrades.

BTEC consumerism - Unit 2 guidance

Hello,

This may help with your consumerism article for Unit 2

You might want to structure it in this way and include some of the suggested ideas when researching and compiling the work.

Remember to choose your own artist that works with the theme consumerism as well as Landy or Perry. You will need a high quality colour image from each artist.


Structure

(1). What is consumerism a general definition; also consider looking at what wider society says about consumerism - look at different views of consumerism http://www.globalissues.org/article/238/effects-of-consumerism 
http://apecsec.org/6-pros-and-cons-of-consumerism/
Consider looking at Marxist or economic arguments for consumerism.

(2). What does either Landy or Perry say about consumerism - why are they tackling it as a subject and how do they do this through their art? Are they for consumerism or are they against it - how do you know... (a) From what they say in interviews (b) How the message is conveyed visually through their art.

(3). Using their image - Visually deconstruct the image explaining how the visual language of the image is used to convey meaning and message.

(4). Your own chosen artist  - repeat the same process sections 2 and 3 with your chosen artist.

(5). Who/what are they influenced by and how? In your research explain who or what the artists that you've chosen are influenced by, aim to identify the artist primarily, but consider politics, popular culture and society as a whole. What do these other people say about consumerism, how does your chosen artists work connect to their influences?

(6). Write a conclusion - what do you now feel about consumerism - whose views do you now share and why?


Y02 Blended learning task - planning

Over the coming 8 days we'll be shooting using the Mamiya C330 and the 10"x8" view camera.

For your blended learning you'll need to write up a plan for both of these shoots identifying what it is you want to get from the shoot and what you need to do in preparation for the shoots.

Use the opportunity to identify the use of an array of different materials, techniques and processes, identify this opportunity in your plan. Look at the weather over the coming days including tomorrow and identify theoretical problems relating to the light. Include weather charts as part of your planning (Remember to make this visual).

Things to include in your plan...

  • Films and papers you're going to use. With the films try and use films you've not previously used and look up their properties and characteristics on the manufacturers websites 'Product data sheets.
  • Who you're going to photograph.
  • Why these shoots are useful - what are you going to gain from it and whether there is potential for you to then use either of these cameras in conjunction with your own self-directed shoots. What will be the benefits of using either camera on your own shoots?
  • Plan of poses.
  • Expectations of the light - what you expect the light will be doing regarding the mood - discuss the light in terms of mood and effect on contrast.
  • Light ratios - use of reflectors or black reflectors to increase contrast.
  • Plans for post production - e.g. your 10x8 negative images on the photo-paper - how will you convert these to high quality usable digital positives.
  • Plan to make paper-negatives using traditional darkroom contact sheet approach.
  • Props/clothes?
Once shooting make sure you photography the set up and draw floor plans.

Use both these up-coming opportunities to create loads of images and pages of practical work. Consider printing the 6x6 negatives...

  • With David Bailey-esque borders
  • With the fake post production borders in darkroom
  • With the fake digital post production borders (After scanning prints)
  • On a range of different papers (See Steve Gibbs).
  • On matt finish paper and hand-tine using mixed media approaches - different pens, pencils, paints and other mark-making tools.
  • On liquid emulsion - consider adding colour or damaging the paper (Decay).
Again all the above can be high-lighted in your plan.

Specialilst papers

This is for both years BTEC and UAL

At this point in conjunction with your projects you're strongly advised to shoot film (Different types) and print in the dark rooms using a range of different papers. You were all sent an email with the details relating to the use of these papers and the new arrangements for buying it. If you take up the idea, your blended learning will be to do the research identifying the properties and characteristics of the paper. As always do not plagiarise - read the material and write up in your own words.

You need to do this by 2nd May.


Here's the email sent 24/4/17 (Slightly different for the 1st years)...

Hello,

 Steve Gibbs and Alex have come up with a multi-pack of different papers for use in your FMP. Used in conjunction with your test shoots this will allow for massive displays or knowledge and awareness of material, techniques and processes, especially if you research further via the manufacturers websites and compare and contrast the manufacturers claims against your own experience of their use. (Distinction potential).

 These are high-end papers for use with professional applications – two of them are especially worthy of your attention and it would be great to see some of this paper being used in your finals. One of them combined with drawing or painting or some other mark making approach would be exceptionally well received by anyone marking the work showing exceptionally high knowledge and advanced use of MTP’s. (Providing the written support was evident).

 A ‘Multipack’ of specialist papers includes the following – (£3.95)

Ilford MG 300 Art paper

Ilford Classic MG Fibre based Matt finish.

Ilford Cooltone MG IV RC with glossy finish

Ilford Warmtone MG IV RC with pearl finish

 There’s one sheet of each allowing for a few test strips and a half sheet print.

 If you like what you see and the paper suits your purposes or you want to work with it more, you can buy the papers individually in packs of 5 from Alex. A price will be issued as soon as Alex and Steve have worked it out.

BTEC 1st year - Blended learning - Painters Pool - Jem Southam

This task is associated with your Unit 1 - Labyrinthine project

Painter Pool - Jem Southam

This series of images by the British Photographer Jem Southam feature a series of woodland images that could be interpreted as being 'Labyrinthine'.

Have a look on-line for further images using the search "Jem Southam painters pool". Select the one that you feel is the most 'Labyrinthine' and analyse and deconstruct it as this weeks Blended learning task.

Remember to offer your initial response to the image and then research the images and the story behind the images. (See the 2nd year post for links to the prompts).


Make sure you write about the context of the images - what kind of work is this, where would it be seen, who is its audience, who would buy this - how would it be sold?

Does it look like any artists or photography you are already aware of. Does it look like the scene from any movies you may have seen or are aware of? How does it make you feel, what is your emotional response to the work?

"Painters Pool" Jem Southam

UAL Y02 Extended Diploma Blended learning - due 9th March

This links with your FMP. There's two options as with last week...

(1). If you've got a basic idea for your FMP and you know your theme, find your own artist/photographer or associated piece of information and produce your required two pages A3 or 4 pages if you're working using an  A4 sketchbook.

(2). If you've still yet to make a decision on your theme, research Richard Avedon. Avedon is famous for both his fashion photography and his work "In the American West". Choose one or the other depending on whether you prefer fashion or portraiture/documentary.

Remember to compile a bibliography as you research your information and images. If you've got the recommended books you should have bought for the course you'll find Avedon in the book allowing you to add 'Hard-copy' sources to your bibliography.

Remember if you do internet research try and use high quality websites e.g. national newspapers, museums and art galleries. Use quotes and cross reference your quotes with your bibliography.

Lay it out like this -
Start the written work by offering your initial response to the key (Single) image, for example use the prompts here...


(1).Do you recognise any similarities between this image and the work of other photographers/artists or perhaps programs on the television – how are they connected, how might this work be influenced.

(2).What mood is conveyed in the image, is it conveyed through the use of light, colour or something else… body language/facial expression.

(3). What do you think the images are about, what is the message – what are they trying convey to us – why do you think this?
 
Click here for further prompts (look in side bar).

UAL Y02 Blended learning

Hello,

This week you have a choice.

1. If you have some idea of what your basic theme is for your FMP, choose your own artist/photographer and conduct your own research in the way that you've been taught since September.

* Try at this stage to use books and journals, you're going to lessen your chances of attaining a higher grade if you rely entirely on internet based research. (Applies to both tasks).

2. If you're still struggling for an idea at this point choose your photographer on the basis of their technique or use of materials techniques or processes. So this week look at Irving Penn - specifically focusing on the 'Corner' portraits. 

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2010/feb/22/irving-penn-portraits-photography

Remember though it is more important than ever to now compile a bibliography, use quotes and cross reference your quotes with your bibliography.

BTEC 1st year blended learning task

Hello,                                                            Note - Do not copy the text, do not use Wikipedia.

This one is associated with your Unit 01 'Labyrinthine' work.

You need to research Idris Khan. What you need to produce is...

2 Full pages of work if produce as A3 in the format that you're already aware of or...
4 Full pages of work if produced as A4 - 2 pages of images and 2 pages of commentary/analysis.

With regards to the analysis you need to focus on showing that you're aware of the context in which this work is produced (Operational context) and also the historical context e.g. who's work is it inspired by, who and what are Idris Khan's influences?

The images you need to focus on and discuss/analyse are of the type see here (Double click the image below)

For more examples see links below...

As your work includes the necessity to identify different types of context in which photography exists looking at the differences in a range of approaches to photography, this week I want you to look at and analyse commissioned photography. You need to compare and contrast it with Art Photography and contemporary approaches to Landscape photography (Gursky) and discuss the influences of the David Noton work above. 


The main focus of this work is the David Noton work.


The main things you need to write about (Use headings) to differentiate...

  • Who or what is the work inspired by/similar to?
  • What techniques and equipment are used?
  • Also look for and discuss whether this photographer has been reviewed by National Newspapers, galleries, critics or academics, how many examples can you find?
  • Also discuss whether and why his approach/equipment is appropriate?
  • Discuss the work in comparison of that of Andreas Gursky (Use Gursky images).

For additional prompts to generate written content see the sidebar here on the blog or refer to the list on the wall in the classroom at college.

The work must be completed in full and presented on Monday 3rd October in Dave Thompson's session. 

Old Blended learning - Y02 - David Bailey

David Bailey and the 1960's this week. The work needs to be written up, images all collated and stuck in your folders by Monday next week 10th Oct.

The emphasis of your work this week is looking at the context of David Bailey's rise from East End boy to one of the most famous and influential photographers in the world. What was happening around him - politics, society, economy, culture that enabled his rise to fame.

Be careful when selecting your images, remember one of the things you'll be working with when producing your own images based on Bailey and the 1960's is the inclusion of the border in the print and the square format - refer to video (1) as he talks to Kirsty Wark of Newsnight, note how many of the images are square format and include the black border.
