One major factor we are missing by not working in the studio is the community to bounce ideas off of and receive feedback on things like, ‘Am I done?’
So many of us are going too far, and that’s okay, it’s part of this new learning environment, we are all learning to adjust. One advantage of having a digital critique is that if, for example, you didn’t stop when you should have, then submit an earlier image for your final PDF or folder. If you don’t like the final product, you don’t need to submit a photo of it unless you want to include it as part of the process.
Many of us are required to organize our photos in two PDFs, a final submission PDF and a documentation of research and process PDF. Both should have quality images and short summaries of why you selected them. It’s also important to edit these two documents. Don’t include everything you have done. We have all done so much and our teachers know that we have had a lot of time to create and we have been creating. So be sure edit each file to show a full vision of your work and process, as it relates to your final project, and omit repetitive and unrelated information.
Submit the photo of the work you’re most proud of.
