Final Major Project: Portfolio Review and Discussion – Michelle Sank – 20-02-18

Notes from my recent portfolio review and discussion – recorded here for reference and action.


Key points:-

  1. Technique excellent

  2. Know how to use a camera

  3. Great portraits

  4. Good at directing people and getting exactly what is wanted

  5. In figure 1, most effective crops are the two images on the left hand side. Have more direct ‘eye’ contact with viewer. You are drawn into to these images.

  6. Have an excellent attitude to work – passionate and enthusiastic – should help me to progress.
