This is my own example from the class exercise 'What do I know..?'
What should I be doing in my subject area?
I should be learning about photographers, critical theory of photography such as Walter Benjamin, Solomon Godeau, Roland Barthes, John Berger, Susan Sontag and many more.
I should be discovering different photography techniques and practicing these.
I should be creating many different types of projects both technical and conceptual to really understand the many different aspects of photography
I should go to galleries and shows
I should keep up to date with a changing digital world and the latest in photography
What skills and knowledge do I need for my subject area?
I need the knowledge stated above but also knowledge of how photography works in the world today and how I could promote my photography work
The skills I need are understanding all my camera settings, understanding frame, composition, and light. I need to have a clear digital workflow and storage system for my work
What jobs can I get by studying in this subject?
I could work as a freelance photographer, photo editor, photo archivist, curator, photographer for newspaper or magazine, graphic designer, teacher,
If I scored myself out of ten, with ten being the highest, how well do I think I know my own subject area?
I would give myself an eight as I still think there is much to learn! Also, technology changes very quickly and there is much to discover!
