I know that it’s taboo to talk about gear. Focusing too much on this stuff misses the point of what making photographs is all about. Richard Avedon used to require his students make their final portraits for his class in a photo booth, which is a rather extreme way of making this point and Richard Avedon, of course, was correct. However, Avedon didn’t use a photo booth too often to make his portraits so it’s not altogether unimportant either one the substantive view is there.

The program seems amazing, even more so that I know that they only take 4 people. Though everyone in the School of Arts has certain classes together, the level of instruction you get when working in your discipline sounds phenomenal. It makes for a wonderful program that’s almost impossible to get into! So I’m guessing it’ll be a couple of weeks before I find out what the deal is, but I’m excited and nervous, and even more so now that I’ve been there and seen it all.
