My main discipline is photography so I would like to create something using this form of media. I have already ascertained that. Im not sure whether or not I want to go into a group or not. I feel there are pros and cons to each.
Individual Pros – I get to have full creative control, and I don’t have to worry about work load allegations and people not pulling their weight.
Individual Cons – Can involve a lot more work as I am having to do it all on my own.
Group Pros – Two or more brains are better than one. Can delegate to lighten the work load. Potential for a bigger more creative detailed work.
Group Cons – People not pulling their weight. Having to negotiate, people not agreeing with you, or not enough for everyone to do if it is a simple idea.
I talked with a few people from the class to see what their thoughts were and we decided we would go home and think about some ideas and get back to each other to decide on whether or not we will go in a group.
I have some photos I took from last years Light Nelson event that I took the kids to, here they are from my personal collection.
