I loved it, actually.
And this informality trickles down into the whole department.
I call my professor Angela. (that is her name after all)
But...informality has its drawbacks too.
It seems most of the time that my prof has no idea what she is doing and kinda fakes her way through the day.
Case and point: we spent 45 minutes today watching her set up her laptop to show us a slide show. Right after telling me that in certain situations during a wedding shoot, you need to improvise and be flexible.
Poetic justice anyone??
And how do I know she is faking her way through the day?
Because I did it too. I spent many 'o days not planning what to teach and walking into a room of strangers and churning out a lesson...not really giving a clear enough answer but giving one good enough for the moment.
But her answers are not good enough for the moment even.
I can't say that I am learning nothing. I can't even say that I am not being challenged. But it's not enough at the moment. I am bombarded with book work when I want to get into studios and outside to shoot.
But to be optimistic I have only 2 weeks left with her.
