Hey, TarrickS!

I actually don't know whether for certain NESA will provide an image as a stimulus this year for the HSC (they did one last year for Module C in English Standard so it might be less likely) but it is worth preparing for the possibility anyway in case it comes up in your Trials :D

When you receive an image, it's first important to read the question and see if there is a specific way you are supposed to use it. Do they want you to have it as the main setting of the story? Is the image meant to be used conceptually? Once you know exactly how you are meant to be incorporating it in your response, you should examine it and analyse it as you would any other visual text. See what features it has and really scrutinise to see if you can draw some interesting interpretations from it.

I would then recommend thinking about ways you might reference the image in your response to develop stronger layers of meaning. You can use this using stylistic features inspired from the texts you have studied in Module C. For example, you might use an object in the image as a motif in your response which transforms in its symbolism over the duration of the story, or have the serene, inviting place captured in the image contrasted with the turbulent, emotional experience of the character.

The key thing at the end of it all is to make sure you justify the way you interpreted the image and integrated it into your creative response in the reflection. This is where you have the chance to prove to the marker that you thought about the image critically and really used it as the basis for your writing to emerge from. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any further questions!
