Hi Steph!

I can see why Steve McCurry and his work is inspiring to you. There is no doubt that his work is fascinating!

You mentioned a few keywords that I thought we’re fascinating in your assignment:

truth, captivating, story, elements and color

Any good photograph has some combination of all of these. Well maybe not a black and white 😉 but you get my drift…

If you can keep that in mind when you shoot, you’ll improve. Think about how honest photography can be. Think about how captivating one single image can be. Remember to tell a story hopefully using various interesting elements and color.

Is this the photograph you are referencing? I was unable to see it at the link.

I enjoyed your piece and I would encourage you to learn more about Steve McCurry.

Here is a video about him.

Obviously the goal of this assignment was not to get you to refine your writing skills… The idea here is to refine what inspires you. To get you to think about why photography is interesting to you.

I hope you enjoyed the assignment. You did well.

See you on the next assignment.
