Your should now have at least one image taken by your pinhole cameras, so should be in a position to control using your own camera. 

Using your pinhole cameras, task 2requires you to investigate photographically,
the personality of an open place/spacewhen it is devoid of human presence.
You will have little control of the light with your hand-made (pin hole) camera so
you will have to test and learn how it interprets the world. As the pinhole camera
is relatively rudimentary equipment, (unless you make a more sophisticated
version) this task will help you to achieve the learning outcome of appropriate
pre-visualisation skills. Through your tests, you will learn to understand how
your vision is transformed into an image and a permanent negative can be
created.
Reflect on the personality of place/space you are representing (it may be a public
space where people convene or a more private space) and how it is momentarily
transformed when it is populated by certain individuals or groups of people and
consider how you can document this ‘non’ space (Auge 95).
Your submitted work must be original to you. Using your acquired printing skills
to enhance your assessed task, you will need to submit 2 – 4 final photographic
prints which represent the space you are documenting. Remember this task is
part of the assessed work for this module so you are advised to spend time
building on and improving your initial starting point.
Your finished artefacts and a digital copy (on disk) will need to be submitted as
part of your final submission for 152MC on May 21 at 4pm, along with a
coversheet (NB coversheets can be downloaded from the 152MC moodle
homepage) together with your archived blog.
If you fail to hand in this task as part of your assessment, your grade will be
affected. If your work is deemed of a low standard you will have an opportunity
to resubmit your work. In which case CM will discuss this with you directly, NB
submissions are capped at 40%. If you are unable to meet the deadline you can
apply for an extension via the administration department. CU you has a strict
policy on hand in dates, extensions are only given in extenuating circumstances
and will need to be supported by 3rd party evidence.
Please see Clare Jeffs in reception if you need to apply for an extension.
