Hi official blog, here’s a post from my tumblr:
I’m not sure why, but I’m in a good mood.
After giving another photography lecture… I’ve sort have got to thinking about this whole photography education thing. The only people who are good at this thing are self-doers. They learn by going out in the streets, getting their hands dirty. They make mistakes, but know the possibilities out there, and that their goals are actually in reach.
I’m still going to hold these photography lectures, since it’s sort of cool teaching something for once. The idea of having pretend “office hours” where I just sit at cafe medici for 2 hours and see if anyone wants to come by and talk about photography sort of excites me.
The thing is, very little comes out of these lectures, the prodigies get little out of them since they’re too hot headed. How do I pull all of our talents together and make something cool out of it? What can be done with all of these photos that we’re taking?
Oh, here are the slides from the lecture! https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1sSFKSW4-N1Gpk3b0MoglK9GWxeTmsySwWw7VMxEcCwc/edit
