GCSE Photography Assessment Sheet
The pictures that you have taken in this task show some sense of discovery, however they don’t really tell me
an awful lot about the place that you visited. I would have liked to have seen more pictures and also a lot more
sustained investigation of your chosen subject
The exhibitions that you visited have some good analysis and you have clearly begun to look at and describe
the more complex issues involved in the construction of the image. The in-depth analysis you have written for
the “Vision of the Universe” are particularly strong.
Overall you have completed all the tasks set but I fell that you have not gone in-depth enough with both your
contextual work and your visual practise. You must make sure that your final project demonstrates a deeper
level of investigation and analysis.
Strand 1 - Force of nature – (T-)
Some interesting images You have thought through the images well and demonstrated a good understanding of
the brief. However I would like you to use contact sheets and then edits rather than showing all your images in
Strand 2 - Applied Force – (T-)
.A good selections of images but again you need to have some detailed analysis of a relevant artist that you can
link to your own work.
Strand 3 - Force of transformation – (T-)
This section is strong and is starting to show a real sense of development. I think the ideas shown particularly
around the double exposure of the human portrait can be developed much further. Please keeps up the
investigation and you must continue to put in detailed analysis of other photographers work.
Well done Leah some good work here I think that you should continue to be experimental in your process and
try out more ways of capturing the derelict man made enviroment. Remember to keep up the contextual links
throughout and fill in the sections that I have spoken about.
Create contact sheets instead of large images

More Artists are needed to expand your contextual element in this unit.
Final pieces could be printed out larger to have more of an impact the existing images could be an interim
Put all work onto one tab makes it easier for the examiner to read and mark. Make sure to make contact sheets
for each shoot that can be place before your edits
