i came across two diff type of proficiency tests in Photography
1) PSS Distinctions
2) photo_vivo Distinctions
And i have a few questions to ask ...
Q1) what are the main key difference between the titles given by the 2 different society (ie LPVS vs LPSS) or they are just the same thing
Q2) which one has more prestige ? any reason? which school /one more popular?
Q3) If i am really confident can i skip LPVS/LPSS and advance straight into the next level - APVS/APSS ?
Q4) do singaporeans really use these titles often? or more for wayang / real professional/
Q5) can anyone who pass these exams please explain to me in more detail as what type of photos I'm expected to produce
Q6) how about / who i can approach to see / least grade my pics before i send them for grading ?
Q7) what happens if you fail / can you retake again? any limits to the number of times you fail? if your pics are not good, will the judges tell you, your mistakes?
Many thanks for reading my questions and i look forward to your comments!
