It has taken a week and a half to get half of the tutorials for this week’s work. Confused? Trust me, so are we. There are 7 tutes for this week. By Thursday of the week, only Tutorial 1 and 2 were available. We then received 3 and 4. But no word on tutorials 5, 6 and 7. The assignment due date has been altered twice now, and no doubt will be altered again if they cannot get the tutorials out to us in time. The new due date coincides with the due date of the second assignment so this RMIT unit is really starting to completely fall apart.
Nevertheless, I have attempted to follow the tutorials, which again I have found clunky and unexpressive. We are continually told “move this setting to 73 and then add a soft light filter”. There is no indication why the magic number of 73 is chosen or why that particular filter so once again, it makes it very difficult to determine the right way to use these ‘techniques’ on any images apart from those in the given tutorials.
So here are my attempts at Tutorials 1, 2, 3 and 4.
