Week 9 Miniclick review LO4 27.09.20
The other day I saw on IG that mini click curators were offering portfolio reviews, so I made contact with them via email and asked about having a review, and I got a really quick reply from Roz Doherty , saying yes send some stuff over. Unfortunately it was the day the dreaded lurgy started getting worse so I then slept for two days straight nearly and didn’t get round to responding . I don’t know if it’s one of those missed opportunity things now, but I replied yesterday with a selection of images from last module and this module, so we will see how that goes and if I managed to get in in time before everyone wanted their work looking atFingers crossed !
I found It’s even harder getting your WIP down for a review as I didn’t want to send too many images and impose on their time too much. I eventually got my WIP from last module down to 10 , and this modules had more at I think 15 , this was still way too many I thought, so I over compensated by creating very small pdf’s which probably isn’t a good idea. I am going to spend some time this weekend compiling a WIP from the whole of my MA so I can send that out to people without having to be put on the spot to ‘create’ or ‘find’ something.
I did this when I wrote to Blaire at the exchange and only sent about 6 images, which was much better than thing time. I suppose it was because it wasn’t a portfolio review, but more I was trying to show the best of my work at the email to blare, where as at a review I think it’s important to show a range so you can see where you need to improve. Also another person may think an image you didn’t think was your strongest, is infact the most interesting or arresting. It would be far too prescriptive to only ever show the best 5 photos say, and my wide reaching project for the MA on all forms of alternative education is far too large for so few images. This is something I need to consider going forward, as too few images doesn’t show the breadth of the project, or makes it look disjointed, too many and people either won’t bother looking, or will get bored whilst doing so.
