Week three is in the books, and this past week found us actually looking at images! The students submitted their first assignment images dealing with motion blur and depth of field, which we loaded into Bridge and examined/critiqued as a class. This was very helpful to me because I am a student of Lightroom, so Bridge is very new to me – and I got to learn as we went along with the students. Shannon was sick for our Wednesday class, so I got to lead the class by myself. It was a very rewarding experience. I know there were things I could have done better, but overall I feel like I did pretty well on short notice. We used bridge again to look over the students bracketing assignment, discussed their first creative project for the class – which is simply a project based on ‘time’, let the students view La Jetée – the awesome French short film about time travel that is comprised entirely of still images and a narrator, and finally taught them how to create a digital contact sheet in Bridge for showing Shannon their work next week! Very exciting feeling to lead the class, I think I managed to hold their attention well, and after looking back on how the class went feel that I may have moved a bit fast through some steps, but mistakes are often the best learning tools! More to come, very excited!
