(Replace ‘book’ by ‘photo’, and ‘literature’ by ‘photography’)
Procedure : go to any town in your neighbourhood, look for the market place, use a camera, choose RAW, talk to people, shoot, say good-bye, go home, process the files in Lightroom (black and white) and NIK (bleach bypass), publish.
Know your a better photographer and a greater artist at that moment than any art-teacher in chains. Learn to distrust them, especially the Austrian species, or other models with triple glasses, proudly declaring being sterile or unable to handle a camera.
“The main thing is to study pictures and stop listening to the pontifictaions of photographers. Photographers aren’t oracles of wisdom. If they’re good photographers, then take a good look at their pictures – what else do you need?”
Andre S. Solidor, alias Elliott Erwitt.
