*photo not taken by me but reproduced here w permission
recently, a group of art school students approached Mr X w some of their photos, seeking advise.
but Mr X, who holds PSA 5*Star awards for both color slides and print, someone who is accustomed to the rigid (and demanding) rules of salon photography, couldnt comment on any of them, cus they seem to break and bend every rules that he lives by.
so, after browsing through some examples, Mr X shot the above pigeon and passed it to one of the students. the student submitted the edited version (w the building on the left cropped of and converted to B/W) to his lecturer for grading.
the lecturer is full of praise and awarded the pic a A plus.
but Mr X is still clueless about wat contemporary photography is all about.
can someone help him?
