feedback, part 2
In this post on timing of feedback, Julie asks
I always felt that when people encouraged you to leave as much time as possible between shooting and editing that you’d be as well editing someone else’s pictures, because that connection to the event would be lost. If I can paraphrase, to see if I’m understanding your thought process… you take your pictures and then edit them within a shorter timeframe because you want to put as much of your experience into the process as possible?
That seems close, and I like the idea of putting more of my experience into the process. Right now, it’s being in the process that’s the rewarding part for me.
But I admit that those thoughts are post-rationalization. Mostly I was just observing that if you want to train a neural net, you want the reward to come as close to the event you’re rewarding as you can reasonably arrange, and you want to have the process of delivering the reward to be as minimally disruptive as you can manage, and that it sort of seems like those two things sometimes conflict.
Bear in mind, I’m not saying everyone should do what I’m trying. I’m just trying different stuff, here, and reporting back on what I find happens when I do. I’m not claiming superior results or deeper insight. It’s possible I’m out in the weeds, here. Time will tell, I guess.
