Initial reflection on Assignment 2

I have all but finished assignment 2 and I have to say it feels like a bit if a disaster.  Having done the bulk of the unit early on, I had too long a period of inactivity then really rushed the assignment. I have two choices now, start from scratch again of submit it and act on Dave’s feedback of which I’m sure there will be plenty if I’m going to be able to put this forward for assessment.

Looking back on it, I think I misread the initial instructions for part 1 of the assignment: ‘….select 4 situations, ….submit 3 images for each of the situations you choose’.  The way I read this was that I had to take a series of images of the same scene, adjusting exposure, shooting position etc., so that what I saw and the camera saw were as close as possible.  In other words, experiment until I got a good image straight from the camera or at least know what I had to do to get it right, which was part two, or so I thought.  I’m now thinking that I should have had 3 different images, all good, for each lighting situation, which is why part of me things that I should start again.  What worries me is that if  I start again, I will give up altogether.

About Anne Bryson

I live in Gloucestershire with my husband Iain and West Highland Terrier, Isla. I enjoy golf, photography and my grandchildren, not necessarily in that order! Having completed a 10 week digital photography course with the Open University in 2010, I decided I wanted to take my photography further and enrolled for the Open College of the Arts BA (Hons) starting with 'The Art of Photography' which I enjoyed so much that I went gone on to do Digital Photographic Practice and People and Place. In April 2016 I enrolled on my fourth OCA photography course, Documentary. This blog is my Learning Log for this course.
