This year has been without a doubt driven by the desire to sharpen my craft. I think you can never consider yourself as done with the learning process, photography is just so complex and wide open. I had promised myself I would take a class of some sort before the end of the year, just to keep my creative juices flowing and learn from other professionals with different experiences and horizons. I ended up signing up for an advanced studio lighting class at the ICP. Below are some study material produced these past few weeks.
Challenging, exciting, frustrating, daunting and humbling are words that come to my mind when describing the process of the class. And I am not even half way into it yet.
Below: The exercise was to reproduce a famous shot form the movie In the mood for Love by Kar Wai Wong.
