I was extremely happy with the final feedback I received from my tutor for the last assignment. Having wrestled a bit with finding a suitable idea for the photograph, I was pleased it worked out, especially when I received the following feedback:-
The final image shows real planning with attention to portraying the story – with the sourcing and including Vegemite. The image is accomplished and you have absorbed both technical and aesthetic principles from your study of Crewdson.
My tutor also pointed out the awful perspective distortion which I had neglected to rectify. I love using my wide-angle zoom but sometimes forget the effect it causes. As part of the final submission I have corrected it using the functionality within Lightroom which was quick to do.
My tutor also advised me to write interim posts for assignments ahead of writing up the final submission. I have made a mental note for future courses to catalogue the sequence of generating ideas. I think I achieved this best for Assignment 2, but it fell by the wayside for other assignments.
I had also added personal projects to the blog which was well received by my tutor. These have been haphazard to say the least over the duration of the last year or so, but I’m now picking up the pace again and getting more and more motivated.
I spoke with my tutor about the issue of timing and being able to squeeze in my third level 2 course before the deadline (having spent so many months on this course). I am determined to achieve this and she suggested overlapping with finalising for the assessment with starting the next module and this was good advice having also checked the deadline dates again with the OCA office. I can’t wait to start the next module now!
