For those of you who have not heard of The Arcanum, it is a photography-based learning pathway, designed by Trey Ratcliff, an inspirational photographer; see his work at stuckincustoms.com.
At the Arcanum, Masters select Students, and I have spent the last four months working with Wes Hardaker of capturedonearth.com. He is an awesome photographer and a great teacher. The focus of my studies have been on minimisation, and I posted my initial thoughts here.
I learned how to strip down a photo and select the subject. Simplification led to the inclusion of additional elements.
I do not think that photography is something we ever master 100%, there are always ways to improve. I think my Arcanum experience has helped to create some images that are pretty special. As always, let me know what you think. Go check out the Arcanum, you may get closer to photography Nirvana!
Here are some of my favourite photos that I took for my final critique. Enjoy. Thanks to everyone who has helped me on my learning pathway (including the FAACers!).
Feel free to comment – communication means a lot and is really appreciated!
Keep clicking, Chris.
If you made it this far – well done. I hope to entering sphere 3 soon. Watch this space…
Top images, especially like the first one and the last two. Superb.
Thanks Al. The last picture is a little special, it is one of my favourites.
Love all the images Chris and the FAACers got a mention woo hoo!
Thanks Ronan, The Faacers will one day rule the world! We could for a eclectic collective.
