Art Guide Presenting Work
How do I...Present my work?
1. Your Intentions for the shoot
What were your intentions and initial ideas for the shoot?
Ensure you discuss any artists who you have investigated and how they influenced your work
2. Contact sheets
Contact sheets must be printed for each shoot you do, Annotate and circle the ones you are editing/have chosen to develop, This will help show a critical understanding of your work, ideas and intentions.
3. Enlarged Images
Present your strongest images on a larger scale in your sketchbook neatly and clearly.
Show the unedited versions next to your edited versions, however make them smaller in size, so not to seem more important and draw attention away from your “best” work.
Take your best images and experiment with them, exploring possible variations using appropriate techniques, for example Photoshop techniques, printing on different materials etc.
5. Annotations on Image/Series:
- What is the image/series about? Explain what your intentions were.
