The entire lecture spoke to me. Iím not an action junky, so the patient and thoughtful approach really resonates with me. Iíve honestly never even thought of composing from back to front for some reason. Iím actually a professional artist, and I often times enjoy looking at artist sketchbooks more than i enjoy the final piece. I like to see their process, how their minds work. His approach and showing failures and experiments in sequence was much like his sketchbook. Probably the best photo talk Iíve ever seen. And he shoots in P mode. Haha. Love it.
