Unfortunately I found myself really nervous today doing Instagram live video. As much as I want to, I couldn't help but to be mental block or have a stage fright when I talk to people I barely knew.
I found myself more comfortable in a recording or writing like this one. Well, I may as well write it here.... What I wanna share you guys earlier was my first week of online photography course I am taking. As a person who have been in campus all my life, it opens up a very different doors of learning. There are so many benefits studying online that at times is very convenient in a life situations. One thing is saving time and money-being flexible and not stressing out being late or worry about transportation.
You can be in your PJs, with a hot coffee or breakfast not worrying about how you look or, if you are sick, you could just stay in bed be in your own and go to class later.
Considered also having more concentration and less distraction during study time also applying and studying in your own terms and methods.
Although, one of the things that is lacking is HUMAN INTERACTION. In this kind of environment, expect to see a photo of your professor as an introduction giving you an idea to what he or she look like but you will NEVER meet them in real life nor able to raise your hands, ask questions and have that sense of competing with other student. You can always email your professor or sometimes, some videos are already posted to hopefully help you navigate in a certain chapters and So, unfortunately, you still need to rely on other video sources like YouTube or Bluprint.
As a competitive student these were the things that I am having a hard time adjusting to. I am a kind of person who wants to share my idea playing as a leader at times, make friends with my classmates ect.
Is online courses for me??? Personally, it's different, I like it. But if I can and still have a choice, I will still prefer being a campus student.
But it's honestly doesn't matter if you love what you do. I enjoy photography at the moment practicing and learning it's compositions.
Being outdoors is one of the main key of photography. (Continue below)-
