The final assignment is your chance to do whatever you want with photography. You’ve experimented widely throughout this course, practiced key technical and visual skills, and learned about different genres of photography. Now you can put all that into practice in your final work.
As I approach the last segment of FiP, I am quite emotional. There is so much that I have learned on this journey and so much that I am yet to discover and learn. Every part appeared challenging and put forth new ideas in my mind and new ways to develop skills. Nonetheless, every part of this coursework was thoroughly enjoyable – even the ones that were personally challenging to me, like still life, turned out be great teachers and I feel like this course has taught me in a year what I had learned in my entire photography journey so far.
Learning from other photographers, from the excellent peer group here at FiP, I not only learned a lot but also received and imparted constructive feedback through the course. I have a lot to thank Richard, Sarah, Jonathan, Graham, Dave, Chris and others who have been so supportive and helpful in adding value to this course, providing feedback, pulling me out of mental blocks and just always being there. Their work was inspiring and motivated me to do more. This course not only helped in developing my photography skills but also helped me develop my people and communication skills. In short, this has been the best thing that has happened to me.
As I approach the last assignment, I am possibly going to attempt two final outcomes. As I am tempted to do the degree course in Moving Images, I have been advised by my tutor to try my hand at making a short film so that I get a clear idea of where I stand. Another very strong point that came across all tutor feedbacks is the power of a narrative. At various points, I was asked to attempt a narrative sequence. So possibly, I might also attempt at a series based on narrative.
I am excited for this final assignment and more thoughts on this at a later point.
