Assignment 5 - Tutor Feedback

The final assignment and course is now complete. I felt that this was the best of the 5 assignments that I have delivered and the comments that came back reflected this. I worked hard to make sure the images were of the best possible quality, the areas that I concentrated on were:
  • Removal of noise with lightroom in the RAW conversion
  • Correct WB in the conversion
  • Levels of Light
I also have discovered ILFORD GALERIE Professional Smooth Pearl paper which also comes with an ICC profile for my printer. The combination of all of these has helped produced much better prints and I think I have moved on from he errors of earlier assignments.

On the comment on the hands of the master brewer not being sharp I knew that this would be raised. I took a couple versions of this shot and in both Miles Jenner was rubbing the hops with his hands, an occupational hazard I guess. In the low light I should have noticed this and asked him to keep his hands still.

I too had noticed that the flag pole had covered the 'H' in Harveys in the building shot, this I should have noticed also, ironically I have since looked at two other images from other photographers taken from the same bridge I stood on and in all three this flag pole obscures one of the letters.

I will try and see if I can get an image of a pint of beer in a pub for the final submission as I agree that it is missing to replace the black and white one. Originally I hoped to get a person drinking a pint in the tasting room but believe it or not the brewery is dry for its workers - at least until the end of the day!

I have enjoyed this course and learnt a lot, even though I have found it to be the hardest of the three so far. Looking forward to Landscapes next and moving up a level.

In the meantime these are my favourite images from each section, not all have been commented on but I will add these to my personal website when I get the time....
