You HAVE to SEE THIS!!!!

published on July 17, 2020

I am in the best mood today I have something that I want to share with you guys but first a little context so many of you are probably familiar with Thomas Heaton he has a YouTube channel that is excellent he's a uk-based photographer specializes in landscapes and he is

Unbelievably good I have never actually met Thomas in person we have deemed a few times but anyway I got a message from him I don't know I guess maybe a little over a week ago and he said you know I really love photo assignments and

He said I'd actually like to try the current photo assignment and would you mind if I made a video and I said oh you kidding of course I don't mind I think that would be awesome that's the point of these is for people to participate so

Today I got another message from him saying it's gonna go up in about an hour don't freak out about the thumbnail I actually think it's brilliant so I'm gonna give you a link for this video I highly recommend you go watch it but

Before I do I want to make a few observations of things that I think are really important that I think Thomas just did a beautiful job with so first of all Thomas is a landscape photographer and he's really really good

At it and one of the points that I was trying to make that even though we're doing a still-life related thing in this photo assignment there is a way to think about light in a way to see things and he accentuates that point perfectly I

Remember a couple years ago I went out with my friend David Brooke over that I did the artist series with and actually got to go shoot with him for a day when he was in Fort Worth and it was really interesting observing the way he reacted

To things in fact I think on that day David didn't shoot more than he actually did shoot he was really picky in being decisive about what was available what would work what wouldn't work and whether we had time to wait for

Something and that's really important to understand because whether you're shooting landscapes or whether you're shooting tabletop setups like we're doing for this assignment there's really less difference then it seems there's

Going to be if that makes sense it's like it's really all about light and it's really all about the same thing now I don't want to give away too much of this because Thomas did such a great job of communicating his thought process in

The video but I do want to note that he actually went through and did all the parts of this assignment that I've given so far so actually going and shooting what the window light is doing throughout the day and having an

Understanding with that then using that to inform the next step which is actually going to be looking at the details and trying to copy sue decks work as close as you can he did an amazing job with it but anyway

That's the process and I think what his epiphany that came out of that leave that for his video because that's really important but I'm really glad to see that and that's something like there's a teacher part of me it's like

When you give an assignment you see somebody realize that it's like yes this is good one thing that Thomas does not say in this video that I was really impressed with and it's just an observation when you're seeing somebody

Go through the process like I wouldn't see this by myself doing it but when you see somebody else doing it you see what I'm talking about so the part of the assignment where you're trying to copy the Sudak image down to the T you know

He selected an image and he's trying to get it done and you see his thought process start to unfold and you see how he's starting to learn and he's having these aha moments and I should do this you know so that's been dead for a long

Time and so there's no way to go study with somebody like that but there's this kind of weirdness that I mean it's not weird it's really cool it's one of the most beautiful things about photography and it's one of the reasons I'm so

Attracted to it because it's about visual communication and now what I'm seeing is yosef Sudak visually communicating a lesson through Thomas while he's trying to put this together and I thought that was really cool and

Finally I want to just say that I was really flattered when Thomas reached out to me and said he wanted to participate in this this is somebody that I've looked up to for a long time I've subscribed to his channel for years now

I think he's got a very unique approach to what he does there's a lot of thought process it's a lot of behind the scenes if somebody who's a really good landscape photographer and it was really cool to have him reach out which brings

Me to a point that I want to make about the situation that we're in right now so right now we're all being asked to stay at home and I think that's an enormous sacrifice for people to make we missed the social interaction with other human

Beings that we don't have all of a sudden right now and it's only been a few weeks and so this you know is bad a situation as this is and as big as sacrifices we're making for this there is a little bit of a silver lining and

That we are forced to kind of do things differently than we did before I've been on more zoom calls with old friends over the last two weeks then I can count and I think that that's amazing and then I think a collaboration like this when

Thomas reached out these are important things too and I've got some ideas that I'm working on for this but I just want to say that there is a silver lining to all this and it's somebody who has had a youtube channel for a long time I've

Done this for 12 years now and I think there's a feeling that what YouTube used to have that was a lot more community based in some ways and I feel like when Thomas reached out it brought that back and I really get inspired by

That and I'm excited about it anyway I'm going to link up to Tom's video here so click on it go watch it I know I talked a long time go watch it go subscribe to him he's amazing I will catch you guys in the next video until then later
