Blog of the week: Nigel Roberson

This week we are featuring Nigel Roberson‘s learning blog for his Photography 2: Landscape course. It is an exemplary example of a carefully structured reflective learning log, showing clearly how Nigel has developed his work, selecting ideas, rejecting others and drawing on his research reading. Fabulous.

    First time I’ve seen it – very impressed with the photography and like the weaving of research and personal reflection in the text. You set a great example!

    Interesting reading Nigel. Gives me a sense as well of that leap from Level 1 to Level 2.

    Great piece of work and a excellent record of your trials and tribulations. I have only recently enrolled and will be starting off on TAOP, but your blog was a great introduction to the whole process of developing a learning log online.

    Hi Dave. I am pleased you found it of help. Had a look at your site. First class nature photography.

    This is one of the first times that I’ve explored someone’s blog site and needless to say, I was quite impressed at a job well done and an eminently readable and enjoyable essay and analysis of a landscape photographer who has and continues to influence you landscape specialists to this day.

    Nigel, congrats on the mention, well deserved! Interesting to read about the essay part, and although not nice to hear things didn’t go to well at first, I am at the same place, well, in fact, I still need to get writing… and it is like a mountain in front of me.
    All the best!!

    Hi Dewald,
    When I knew the blog was to be featured I made new enties for the essay so that as many people as possible could see the issues I had. There is a massive amount of help with photographic technique on the fora but not much on writing. Who are you writing about?

    Hi Nigel,

    I am currently struggling with my critical review of Robert Frank for Social Documentary. Have found your blog a great help. Good luck with the rest of the course.
