8 am class (thursday)
Kurt lost all his images. Someone snatched his camera and deleted all is images. Then a few students did n’t turn up until an hour later. All the photos were left in the camera, none were downloaded from before. A couple of cameras didn’t work and two girls kept on chatting . And then I gave that stern mean look. Sorted out all the images in the next two hours (still a few left) and then dismissed a few students to concentrate on the serious ones.. Ah well ,a total chaos !! but no heart broken. Since more bad news were to follow. Such is life. And the story behind the scene.
On a positive note though, of the nine students four are doing time pass, two are sincere and three are really sincere. Before the start of workshop if I were offered a few good students and around 10 good pictures from the class ,i would have happily agreed. But not now. I guess i have to push the students a bit more to get the best out of them. So i maintain attendance sheets and camera roster to make it all happen.
Today I showed them this book by National Geographic called In Focus: greatest portraits . This one is really a famous one
