Yes. I took notes. I'm kind of a nerd.
Anway, here are the four most important things I learned from when Crane came to lecture the other day:
Photography is communication – it has to speak to someone else or it doesn’t matter what you did to make it or how much you “like” it.
Shoot the obvious, and when you get bored with the obvious, start to break through. You have to get bored with it before you begin to find the unusual.
Pick a project that’s accessible – for example, something like a documentary of your father is probably a better idea than trying to shoot the dark side of the moon.
Find the unlimited possibilities in a limited space.
