Enrolled in one of Creative Live classes. Topic was Fashion Photography by Matthew Jordon Smith. Though this is only the 2nd class I viewed, I know Matthew is a very good teacher. In fact, he has broken down the various aspect of this high-profile career into manageable portion of knowledge for us.
I am not even near the league of professional photographers, however alot of what he had shared was immensely useful. Some of the key learning points:
1) Language of Opposite (to place two images, side by side)
2) Black and white is timeless
3) less is more
It is crucial for a photographer to find their unique point of view. Sadly, I am still in the process of achieving that. Matthew strongly recommended us to write our goals in black and white, and read it everyday. … I think that might be really useful. Will try to do that myself~
