Arthur was my instructor for the workshop. The workshop was challenged us to ease out of our comfort zones and abandon our familiar habits in order to introduce new ways of shooting our photos. Once we started to realize Arthur’s method of encouraging creativity through fresh ways of thinking, it became more and more enjoyable. Group critiques took place the day after shooting and they reinforced this, as well as brought fresh perspective to our work. The highlight for me was when I had a one-on-one session with Arthur the third day of class. That hour really helped me to see the good, the bad and the ugly of my work. Arthur’s influence has shown me how to elevate the way I see, think and shoot my photos. Overall, the collective nature of this particular workshop energized me and helped me to visualize my photos in innovative ways.
Just look at it this way; as a photographer I got dull after a while and had bad habits. Arthur has shown me how to improve my photographs. The rest is up to me.
