Framing The World Through My Photographs

Compiling my powerpoint presentation

To support my spoken presentation, I would need to have a visual presentation to go along side and support what I was saying. From my own personal experience from watching many a presentations throughout college and university, I know that I do not find watching something with a lot of text, therefore I my presentation I will be mindful as to when to use text, only using it when its necessary.

My own thoughts were confirmed in the practise runs when Anthony and Daniel thought it was best not to use quote slides, as it distracts the viewer form what you are saying.

Bellow is my Powerpoint presentation:

I decided to give an example of Gainsborough’s work as to demonstrate how paintings represented the family.

In part of my presentation I describe a series of first. As when I have described this to people before that have had issue with understanding, therefore, I decided to use photos from my own family album to demonstrate.

When discussing Billinghams work I mentioned that the later photos in Rays A Laugh, that he got his compositional idea from Larry Clark , I felt it necessary to show one of clarks images so that the audience could understand the connection.

I feel that my presentation was effective as I displayed the necessary images that demonstrated the point I was making. I didn’t want to overload the viewers with to many visuals, thus distracting from my points, yet I wanted to have enough for them to understand which I felt I have done.
