Some for The-Photo-Critics, but some others as well. You can find 'comment crits' here
The stars are really a bit(?) biased - I tend to have critted images I like!

Out of my comfort zone

Thu Jun 14, 2018, 9:01 AM
I have a principle of not setting students something I can't or won't do myself. The year 9's had been given a choice of screenplays to work on this term, and I felt they were totally "missing it" for one of them. So I said to the drama teacher - lets make this thing. Only, I end up on the wrong side of the camera. One of the most difficult things I have done (artistically, anyway) for a while was to edit this. I have acted before, but never on camera, and never had to edit it.




Two hours filming one Friday afternoon with a senior student and the drama teacher directing and doing some camera duty, and then about ten hours of editing and tweaking.

Pleasure. As the Newsweek photo-editor said, you "stand in a different place" - you look at the world a little differently. That's important, and good.
