VU Week 6

Week 6, [last week] saw the beginning on oral presentations. Only a handful presented, but they were well researched nonetheless. I talked about, resizing images, and using flickr to share images, both globally and selectively. Very pleased with the way this class is going, some of the blogs have very interesting work on them. I think next semester there I should try and incorporate more photo-strolls, perhaps with different locations, Organ Pipes National Park comes to mind.

PIC on the other hand is fairly quiet, the calm before the storm, I suspect so next term will be frantic, no doubt.

PHD stuff has stalled, but with my new iPhone I'm getting right into geo-tagging, it is amazing how accurate it is.

Doug Holloway's books are proving very inspirational, I'm on his 3rd one and it is amazing how I do so much of what he talks about, personally, but I owner how I can incorporate it into the curriculum here?

What a day!

Well what a day. Saw some great art, and had a very relaxing day all round. Took comprehensive notes, and will copy and paste once we get home.

Term 1 Holidays PD sessions

This term holidays just gone I undertook 2 PD activities over 5 days.
The first 4 days were spent shooting processing and proofing some film.
The second block of PD involved a 2 day visit to galleries in Adelade.
Then there was a 'bootcamp' run by Adobe, for their AEL and ACL members.

I spent 4 days shooting 10 rolls of 120 medium format black and white fils, which I then processed and made proof sheets of. [4 days]

The 2 day visit to Adelaide revolved around the Trent Parke exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The exhibition was many in years in the making and several years in the planning and was largely a reflection on his own life expressed using high contrast and grainy imagery made over the last 20 or so of years of his life. I found the layout and organisation of the exhibition inspiring. However the heavy handedness of the work became somewhat oppressive and hard work. The lack of nuance was like being hit over the head with a hammer repeatedly; and left m…
