One of the courses undertaken at UTAS this year was the Photo Essay, and I elected to focus on a local beach. Cape Paterson is a ten minute drive from home and these photos were taken over a period of two weeks, using my trusty iPad camera and with very little editing other than cropping. I have always loved photography, but never considered myself to be anthng but a memory keeper – taking photos for personal memories and often not very good photos.
I have always loved using the shapes and forms of nature and man made structures rather than happy snaps and jumped at the chance to do this unit.
The feedback I received was awesome and I have attached the PowerPoint show to this blog post to share it with you.

This is the feedback I recieved-
The images you have selected successfully demonstrate your use of a
variety of design and composition techniques. The combination of collage and single images, and the shifting camera point of view across the series adds visual interest. The single images provide important pauses within the photo-essay.
Your prior writing experience is evident in your beautifully crafted captions. The text is beautifully written and has a great rhythm. It creates a real backbone to your photo essay as the visual imagery in the text connects to the content within your photographs. I enjoy the viewer participation you engage by inviting the viewer to see your imaginative interpretations of the rock shapes and forms.
Your photo essay effectively combines words and images to tell a story. There is a strong location based visual narrative as we follow your beach walk. The text encourages us to enter another world and see the beauty, mystery and timelessness of the beach landscape. Or perhaps it is more apt to say that the photo essay prompts us to see the world as it really is if we take the time to look. Excellent work!
Best wishes for your future photography and writing endeavours,
