#picbod preparatory task

#picbod will kick off again in just a few short weeks (8th January) at Coventry University. As always, the extended classroom that welcomes participants from all locations and experiences is a really important part of the class - so here is how you can get involved and be prepared ahead of the class bell on 8/01/15... Bookmark this site! This site will feature lecture notes, readings, links and workshop tasks which you can access and respond to... Head over to the G+ community! Your reactions, responses and sharing of content and resources can be shown and discussed on the #picbod G+ community found here. This is essentially where the class hangs out... Tune in to Twitter! The class will also be hanging out and sharing via the #picbod hashtag in Twitter - this platform isn't great for discussion but is awesome for dissemination and research in relation to the class. Undertake the first workshop task! This year there is a new format to our thematic discussions and new elements of study to bring in, and so in order to hit the ground running, as well as to better know the class-at-large, the first task is already live...

Pre-visualise and produce a self portrait using only available light, unrestricted in theme and technique yet still supplying a message to the viewer. You should spend time first understanding what it is you wish to convey before then looking at the composition and mechanics of the image and finally production.

Share your results on the community linked above as well as in Twitter with the hashtag #picbod. - Matt
