At my school you’re able to take photography at higher, last year many of my friends took photography, but I didn’t. I love love love photography, as most of you all know. But the school course just wasn’t for me.
I might be wrong in what I’m saying but as far as I know, you basically have six or eight shoots ( eg. Street, food,landscape,animals,light, colour etc… ) So its basically six or eight different topics in which you take pictures for & then you get some of the photos printed out, stick them into a photography book & write about each photo. You say the different techniques you used to capture each picture and so on.
Last year, there was no written exam for photography you’re photography book was just sent away and that what was what determined you’re exam result. Apparently they judged you on whether you’re pictures were glued in right, how you stuck them down etc etc.
Although I love photography, I didn’t want to take it. This is because I knew it would suck all the fun out of it, I love it as a hobby & if I was to do it then I don’t think I’d ever enjoy as much. It would start to feel like a chore & I would lose interest.
I didn’t want to get graded on something I find enjoyable, be compared to other people. Feel like I wasn’t as good as others, feel like I wasn’t good enough.
So that’s it, I’m sorry if I just utterly bored you all to sleep. I just felt like posting about this, it may even help any of you make a choice if you’re indecisive. Thankyou for reading if you got to the end, somehow.
