Hi Claudia,

Thank you for submitting another assignment. I am excited for you and your journey in learning photography!

I think your attitude toward learning and gaining experience is excellent. That quote from Bresson is one of the best things to keep in mind when you are practicing.

There is something awesome about being new at something and surfing the learning curve!

Experiment, play, shoot everything and have fun. You only get to be a beginner one time!

I had not heard of the work of Steven Kowalski. He is remarkably talented and has produced some absolutely stunning portraits.

I really like his use of color and texture.

If you can get to his level with your portraits you will do very well in your career!

The most important thing here is that you have found inspiration through colorful and theatrical portraits! That’s great.

Knowing what inspires you is key to getting to the next level with your photographs.

Now that you know what specifically inspires you, you can do that!

Great job here.

BTW I really like this one:
Just lovely!

See you on the next assignment.
