Many years ago, a university student objected to his mark on the basis that he had worked on the assignment a long time.
I told him that if I had wanted to evaluate the amount of the input – as opposed to the quality of the output – I would have just asked them to submit the number of hours they’d worked on it, rather than the actual case study.
I thought of that the other day when I was playing around with Prisma. I often enjoy the output, but it takes too little work and skill to be really satisfying.
I expect that’s another blog. After all, where do I draw the line, given that I don’t mind operating my camera on various automatic modes or using simplified post-processing software to correct the deficiencies in my photo-taking techniques? I dunno. But it’s all enough to make me think about what I’m doing, and what gives me satisfaction.
