Tonight is the last class of my photography - end of session 2 - which is also the end of the classes offered at the University.
I still hadn't received my marks from session 1........... which being me didn't make any sense. How did I know if I was on target - getting it - or should I be taking remedial classes?? It really was weird to me, Usually you need a pass in any 101 class to be able to move on to the 102's. But not in this class. Being me - it was driving me NUTS.
So this week I fired off an email to my instructor asking for my marks from 101. She wrote back saying the college sent the marks out - and sometimes it took them a while to do it.
Anyway - she did send on my class average............ 85%. Ok not bad - I could live with that. BUT what struck home the most were her comments about my work........
" I really appreciate the intensity of your vision and willingness to pursue it--it makes for very strong work. Quite a bit of variety too. I'd say, keep doing what you are doing."
I guess I did ok eh?? who knew I had "vision" (though of course that could just mean I was totally off the mark and she was finding something nice to say - diplomatic - and politically correct)
So now I wonder - where do I go from here???? Everyone is suggesting I join Photograph clubs - take workshops at the local camera shops. BUT seriously I just don't feel ready to jump out of the nest and fly solo yet...............
Ahh well for now I still have Christmas baking to finish - cookies to decorate and presents to wrap - photography can wait till the new year.
