TO DO DURING THE BREAK: An original story of a standard that can be published on the Sydney TAFE Media news site. It can be told any way you like – a series of photos, a written story, a video, a radio podcast. Post your story on your WordPress and tweet the link (mention me – @babelfishes) when it’s done. NB: This is entirely voluntary – it’s not my style to set homework for holidays. But just in case you wanted something to do 🙂 )
If you’ve been using Instagram for a while, you would be aware of a very successful (and often very beautiful) account called Humans of New York. The Insta account has now grown to include a web page, Facebook page, and a book. It’s also spawned possibly thousands of storytelling sites just like it.
A list of our weekly exercises, which you’ll need to post as a portfolio of work in a gallery on your WordPress sites for assessment. Feel free to interpret each in any way you want to, though the theme of each photograph should be clear to a viewer.
You can also do more than one photo for each theme. The more we shoot, the better we get 🙂
