PH0701 – Work in Progress Portfolio reflection
The concise and well thought-through guidance was much appreciated. I had never considered reproducing the stained glass windows at 1:1 scale, but like the idea. With some of them 6m+ tall and 6m+ wide, image resolution and inevitable high costs might preclude such plans. I also wonder who would have the space and desire for such a large image. Notwithstanding, this is a route worth pursuing.
I had not thought through of the potential limiting factor of submitting a PDF portfolio – I almost always view PDF’s onscreen and imagined that that would be the case during the assessment off the portfolio. It is very true that the images lend themselves better to a screen (although it is quite possible that the portrait A3 printed PDF I supplied would reveal more detail than when viewed on a screen). I do wonder how best a portfolio can be displayed online… something I will need to address in future.
