In June 2019 I started my MA with Falmouth university as part of an accredited education programme.

Imagine you are being commissioned by a newspaper to tell a story in five to seven images. It can be about anything – ideally something local – but it must have a beginning, middle and end. It can be about a person, a place or a thing. Keep your focus narrow. What matters in this exercise is to make sure each photograph gets to the essence of what the narrative wants to express – without needing copy or anything else.

Share the five to seven images of your story below, and comment on the stories of your peers – tell them what you see. Did they understand what your story is about?








Feedback from peers was very positive with people commenting that the photographs were beautiful, showed wonderful interactions, and how interesting the mix of ‘old worldy’ and ‘up to date’ science activities were. Another person commented on how using depth of field and getting in close showed the intimacy of home education. The tactility of the fifth photograph was mentioned and how you could almost feel it. It was also mentioned how the narrative flows well starting and ending with the teacher/mother.
This week we were tasked to set up peer to peer webinars, so Amy, Ilya, Clodagh, Len & myself set up a canvas webinar. It was so interesting hearing about everyone projects, and seeing what they were producing. I really get so much out of these feedback sessions, bouncing ideas of each other, and it is something I have missed this module having more of these sessions with my peers, as it’s great to get different perspectives, and there is such a wide ranging & varied subject specialism and backgrounds throughout the cohorts that hearing everyones different points of view is really illuminating.
Unfortunately I was in a huge hurry as I was taking my daughter to a Q&A climate change event at our local cinema so I had to leave early so I didn’t get to present this time, but that was ok as it was just really interesting hearing and seeing what everyone else was up too.
