This place is like a forced labor camp we cheerfully sign up for. I'm exhausted. Our teacher, David Wells, is brilliant. Check out his excellent (and free!) podcast tutorials here.
He's got photographic intuition that's like driving a car - he just knows where to go and what to push. I don't agree with him on everything (and I shouldn't). The top photo didn't even make the first cut of his review of my assignments and it's my absolute favorite. De gustibus non est disputandum. By the way, that's him just below, trying to give us some material for a light-shadow exercise.
I need to sleep.
