Review of Part 1

I started off by thinking that this unit would be a piece of cake after having completed the short OU photography course, T189, but far from it.  It has made me think about things I took for granted and certainly made me try things I had never done before, both in terms of how I use the camera but also for example still life type subjects.  I am using my tripod much more, my camera has not been set to ‘auto’ since before I started the course and I’ve learnt about a lot of functions that I didn’t know the camera had.  I’m thinking much more about composition and depth of field as well as colour and texture.

Since starting the course I have joined a local camera club so have plenty of opportunity for photo sharing, I’m also making good use of some of the Flickr groups, particularly the T189 group which is very active and there is an expectation that for every image you upload into the group pages, you comment on at least 2 others, so a good way to critique others’ images as well as getting feedback on my own.  I’m submitting my work to my tutor knowing that the printed pictures are not what I would like, but I am fairly happy with the on-line versions and will have this printing problem sorted before I have to submit for Part 2


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.
