Weekend? What Weekend?

This weekend saw me spend 4 hours of writing and preparing my RPL for my Certificate IV, TAA40104.

Then today another full day of eetings and administration preparing documentation for AQTF, as we have an audit next month.

That makes 12 hours more of PD in my books.

A small succes, as a result today, myself and another colleague, worked out how to add version/tracking control to a document in Indesign, stick that in your pipe and smoke it Microsoft Word.

To ad version/tracking control to your documents in Indesign, do this:-

go to type>text variable>define...

Click New, call it something obvious, like oo I dunno version control.

Click ok. Now add this to a text box on a master page, format the characters and paragraphs to your aesthetic, and add any other pieces of information your organisation requires. This means you are not constantly editing it, hey presto, automated version control.

What a day!

Well what a day. Saw some great art, and had a very relaxing day all round. Took comprehensive notes, and will copy and paste once we get home.

Term 1 Holidays PD sessions

This term holidays just gone I undertook 2 PD activities over 5 days.
The first 4 days were spent shooting processing and proofing some film.
The second block of PD involved a 2 day visit to galleries in Adelade.
Then there was a 'bootcamp' run by Adobe, for their AEL and ACL members.

I spent 4 days shooting 10 rolls of 120 medium format black and white fils, which I then processed and made proof sheets of. [4 days]

The 2 day visit to Adelaide revolved around the Trent Parke exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The exhibition was many in years in the making and several years in the planning and was largely a reflection on his own life expressed using high contrast and grainy imagery made over the last 20 or so of years of his life. I found the layout and organisation of the exhibition inspiring. However the heavy handedness of the work became somewhat oppressive and hard work. The lack of nuance was like being hit over the head with a hammer repeatedly; and left m…
