The last four months have been a bit of a rollercoaster and at one point I even questioned why I was doing this. Thankfully I pressed on and now I am on to part five. Having a first read through the whole unit last night, I already have some ideas as to how I want to proceed and ultimately what I want to do for my last assignment “Photography is Simple”.
Reflecting on what I have done so far and If I could go back and give myself some advice, it would be just do it, go with your gut and if its not right don’t worry about it. I think I spent so much time on this first unit worrying about whether this is right or that is right, that I just plain forgot to relax and let my imagination do the talking and trust that voice inside you a little more. I would also say, do a little and often, try different approaches, do a little reading here and there, make scribbles, doodles, take notes, notes, notes and in one or two books not five.
If this lockdown has taught me anything it is that I should just get and make the most of the time I do have. It has been the most debilitating thing to have your freedom stripped to the point that you could not go out and do what you love for the fear of breaking the rules.
so here we go….
