As a floral design instructor, I always recommend my students to bring a digital camera to the classroom. This can be used for keeping a record of flower designs each student learned during lessons.
Recording designs with a digital camera is pretty useful as they can keep the arrangement they made themselves to make it possible to review them later on and use them for uploading online.
Some students store such photos on the public free site available on the internet just for keeping these pictures. Some students upload their designs on the free blog for the purpose of introducing them to the public. Some students make their own websites and share their decorations publicly.
At the moment, there are uncountable number of free blogs which can be accessed and used by anybody who needs a public site. After our students learn flower arrangements at our school, some of them take a break of several months to one year. After that they come back to our school to resume learning floral designs. By this way, they can be released from a heavy financial burden within a short period of time. Since they took some lessons, they got a certain number of credits/units at our school. This helps them qualify to proceed to further advanced program.
When coming back to our school, they show us what kind of designs they learned at our school by showing us the related site address where they upload or keep their past designs. And when they resume taking a lesson, we can help them avoid learning the same type of designs UNLESS otherwise requested by them. Keeping a record of the designs by taking pictures with digital camera is quite useful in various ways not only for them to review the history of their learning but also show their series of floral designs to other people including the instructor who is supposed to teach them next time. Although our school follows the curriculum when teaching students, information about type and concept of designs they already learned at the classroom often helps us offer better training in various senses.
If students like us to introduce the designs they made on the website of our school, we will, of course, consider doing so depending on the outcome and the quality of arrangements they made. Unlike conventional type of analog camera, we can easily change the color, brightness and contrast. If it is necessary, some changes will be made before uploading them although the design itself will never been modified.
Some students who graduated our school send us photos showing the floral designs they made themselves either by email or letting us know the site address of blog or website where they uploaded their own arrangements. We can easily find how much progress and improvements they made on their own flower arranging skills. And we feel very happy with their performance. Those students were very diligent when they learned at our school and very enthusiastic to earn good basic skills of flower arranging. Establishing decent and strong foundation in floral designing skill greatly helps them develop their ability even after leaving a school.
If they would like to keep contact with an instructor or school in the hope that they could get any advices even after leaving a school, it may be a very effective way to make the best use of digital camera.
