So, only a few days to go until I present my panel to the Royal Photographic Society to be considered for the Licentiate Distinction.
I went down to Bath today to observe a distinctions advisory day where people bring their potential panels to show and to receive advice and feedback from some of the assessors who actually judge the disctinctions. I was really quite humbled by the standard of some of the images people had to show, some really amazing images.
I got some very useful tips on what the panels are looking for too and I must say I’m now feeling pretty nervous about my panel now. I know there are a few areas where I can definitely make improvements, but not in the next couple of days. I did order a couple of reprints yesterday which should be here in the morning but apart from that there’s nothing else I can really change at this stage which will make any difference so I’m going to take it along and see what feedback I get.
It’s all good experience and if I’m not successful this time I have a load of useful info on where I need to improve.
My proposed panel
(though it’s entirely likely to change before wednesday!)
