Positions and Practice Week 1 – Reflection

 

This week I feel that I have been challenged in many ways. In a lot of ways I feel very out of my depth. My peers seem to be much more knowledgeable than myself and this leaves me feeling quite worried about how I am not at the same level of contribution as everyone else.

I feel that I understand the concept of global images and reading the responses of others and trying to understand them is another way that I have been challenged this week.

I have been surprised that I actually have some knowledge of historical images. I was initially worried that I would not know any. I was also surprised this week that during this weeks work I managed to come up with some ideas for my final project and I think that working on the Global Image has helped me to do this.

I have learned a great deal about the history of photography. I took myself off in a different route to learn about the positive negative. I have not done my own developing before so this was brand new to me. I learned more about how photography can be persuasive, but also how it can tell a story in a different way to a piece of video footage of the same event. I also enjoyed researching images this week, and how they relate to the global image.
