Perhaps I got out of the wrong side of my bed this morning.
This is a degree course isn’t it? Our tutors are all well above our level of skills and academic achievement and the author of our notes is presumably more than a level or two above that?
Then why the hell don’t the notes make sense?
This really gets me down.
I previously bleated to my fellow students that I couldn’t understand the exercise ‘Sensor linear capture’ because when the notes said that the tones were squashed right on the histogram, mine where squashed left. And when the notes said ‘brighter’ my efforts became darker! Well I was told by my tutor and several other students that the notes were wrong in this case! Wrong! You bet… 180º out you mean. I’m sorry Captain Scott, we have been going North instead of South so no wonder the Norwegians beat us to the pole!
Now I am faced with paragraphs of gobble-de-gook in the exercise ‘Your camera’s dynamic range’ and I am spending more time trying to sort it out than the whole exercise should take!
Of course I might be wrong and I might have to take it all back when someone sensible explains it all to me but in the mean time I want to shout from the roof tops, “Who wrote this, who proofed this and did anyone actually try these exercises out for real before they were palmed off on us?”
