Do I Have The Grounds To Complain?
I'm growing increasingly frustrated with my photography teacher. I do not feel she is teaching me (or anyone else) properly.
At the beginning of every class she spends about ten minutes telling us all how we're failing and not being able to keep up with the work load, then adds more for us to do. It's mostly just taking pictures. She tells what we should be photographing, but now how. The only thing she's actually ever explained to us (briefly) is ISO and shutter speed. She gave a us a few days to take 80 portrait photos, and no one was finished today, and she told everyone who wasn't that they now had an R in the class. She had a professional photographer come in one day to talk about portraits. I'm glad she did, I don't feel like she's capable of effectively explaining it herself. She let's us sign out of class to go take pictures, and while everyone's gone, or even while we're working in the class, she sits at her desk on her phone.
I chose to take this class because I love photography, I wish to pursue it as a career, and wanted to get a jump start before going away to college. Do I have the grounds to complain about this teacher?
Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
