have you ever given much thought to the paper? You print your photograph song. Most photographic paper starts. Life has gotten rank the rags assorted in cleaned there, then passed through large drums, be cut and bleached. Then they're washed, phrased and beaten in giant engines. After several hours of rapid, intense grinding, the purified ragged turned into pulp mats these matter, then shredded in a large vat before being passed to cleansing machines. The reformed papers then passed a giant heated rollers before being cut. Very many people from all around the world, from farmhands to chemists, dockyard workers to ship's captains on numerous tools and machines that had to be invented, built and operated with skill enables you to create this out of this. Nothing in life is truly ordinary. Even a piece of paper is miraculous if you take time to be mindful of it. In the modern world, it can sometimes be difficult to see the wood for the trees. But just as a tree could become a piece of pap...

er in your camera, they can become line, shape, color, Patton and texture. Don't rush your photography. Take time to peel back the layers and go deeper because it's in the small detail. You'll find the bigger picture. No

Perhaps the style of presentation and simple, short, and direct messaging does not "jive" with some; but others may really love this. Yes the production of each episode is stylized and perhaps a bit formal (like a TV Show?), but there is something to be said about it. Perhaps this is not meant for professional photographers? I think of myself as decent amateur / high level photographer. I found lots of great nuggets of wisdom and inspiration from this. Especially when I an in a rut for creativity. Yes I have heard all these concepts and ideas before. BUT it is always great to hear and see a different way of presentation and voice. Please do NOT take the naysayer reviews as the end all. You should judge for yourself and watch a few episodes. If the style and content click for you, I would highly recommend this course.

While I am perhaps more advanced in my photography then this course. It is always great to be able to go back to fundamentals and remind ourselves of the basic principles, and even camera function. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and Chris's other. It is a great motivational jumpstart when lacking fresh creative idea's.
