Also: When you are able to instantly separate Figure from Ground in real world, you will also be able to set it aside.
Whenever you learn a principle you get double information: First the principle and then the non-principle. When you as a photographer are at ease with Figure/Ground you will also be given the chance not to look for it, not to use it.
By the way, let me advertise The Workshop that is scheduled May 11 – 13, 2018. In Berlin. You may want to join there. Some of you definitely should. This year it will be about Factor Street Photography which sits on top of Figure/Ground.
Stay tuned to this site and you will get the draft program really soon. In the meantime you could go here.
Yes, it is me in the photograph. It’s a selfie. I placed the camera on timer, 12 seconds, and rushed back to the sofa. I am glad I took this photograph. Today this café is gone and so it the writing on the wall. On the front of the newspaper I have the autograph of Will McBride but you can’t read that. It was October 2014. He died a few month later.
Why do I show that photograph? Because it in an good example of how you could respond to the November challenge. Got you :-).
That is another story. If you want to join The Academy. You need to become a member of the dedicated Facebook Group that is our workspace for The Academy 2017/1018. Each month there will be a new briefing. Here is the November Briefing. You can still make it.
Good day to all of you. Good weekend.
