Not having written a project proposal before this is not an easy task. There seems to be a variety of articles and advice on the internet for how to write one but it all seems to be not to be very relevant to me.
The examples I have seen are quite succinct in laying out the aim of and reasons behind the project, which is something I feel I need to work on in mine. I struggle not to waffle once I get a thought in my mind.
I also feel that my proposal currently has too many themes in it, the examples I’ve looked at are much more focused and discuss only a few central ideas for the projects. I definitely feel my proposal needs more direction and structure.
From feedback in this week’s webinar I need to add to the proposal some discussion surrounding the technical level of my work and what I envisage for the final output. It is something I had had on my mind but I wasn’t sure whether it was something to be included in the proposal. I now know that it is so this is something I will need to look into further.
I need to think more about who I am making this work for…..who is my audience? I had thought that if my work is to try to make images showing a more actual reality of a place then who will want to see that? Will tourists be interested in those images or am I making them more with a gallery setting in mind?
The work I’ve done so far I think reflects my intention to record a place with documentary style photography and try to show it through truthful representation in my images. From the research this week I do think these also need more focus and direction in terms of subject matter, and also that they will require improvement in skill set.
