Todaya photography lesson turned some how into us attempting to get our new lecture to understand we need time to process and work on our photography work. Didn't quite work, seems she doesn't understand we do other courses and dont have alot of spare time to work on photography outside lessons like btec students do. Last year we had 3 lessons a week, 1 lesson Steve use to stand and lecture abit different topics and then the other two he use to let us get on with our work and use the darkroom studio and computers when we wanted in those lesson times. But instead this year she wants to lecture each lesson and see work every lesson that we have done, problem is no many people have done any because they haven't had time due to lessons (photography ones) all being lectures. We tried to explain this to her but she now wants to let us have 1 lesson a week to do our own work which even that she complianed about it not being enough time but wasn't willing to do the same learning plan as last year. Like of she wants me to do my work outside lessons how am I suppose to do my media course work which I still have 3 essays to write for it, and then do independent Ict study on top, per subject we are suppose to do 2 hours independent study a week I do probably 45 each week but a majority of that is media and photography anyway its the only way to get those courses done
plus I only have 5 hours at most free time to study.

So this year I really dont know how photography I'd going to pan out, I am really going to have to try and do it all in my free time to get the grade I need. She's also brought the hand in date forward to Nov 28th so not long... It use to be early Jan but she brought it forward so she can give us her opinion on it ( look at it over Xmas). Considering our exam works not till February its a bit confusing.

On a good note I managed to get analysis stuck in my sketch book so that pleased her and the fact my first sketch books nearly full.

Wedding to photography Saturday and the reception is being held on a pier so it should be good !
