Learning how to receive feedback constructively

The following series of screenshots includes notes, feedback, and various completed projects. Notes and feedback were often given in emails from different people in my department. Often times I would respond via email but also go to their office to follow up and go over their feedback face to face for optimal understanding. It wasn’t unusual to go back and forth making new changes based on additional feedback along the way. Feedback not only came from my department but from those involved in the video (Rick Rubin, Trouble, etc.)  or using the video (Spotify and others) Throughout this process I learned the importance of effective communication and the overall stream of workflow from start to finish. Receiving feedback on my work and making the suggested edits was one of the most important parts of each and every project. 

Above is a digital "flyer" I made to be sent out to the company. My co-worker Marcus advised I change the photo in the center from black and white to color. Upon making this change we both agreed the photo being in color made the flyer more attractive. 

Above is a photo I took at the 35th Anniversary celebration which served a s a project shot for Heineken and was included in our brand recaps. Nikki, a fellow intern at Universal Music Group specializing in photography suggested I better techniwue in the way my flash hit the subjects. Taking her advice ended up in a far better exposure of the image and subjects as the flash became far more even. 

Above are screenshots showing one of the ways notes and feedback on projects were given to me. I cannot display the two projects or the the work done on them as they have not been released to the public.
