In the post Mr. Maisel states something that is at the core of this month’s challenge…in Mr. Maisel’s words:
…I’ve taught over a hundred weeklong workshops. Part of why I do them is that it keeps me sharp. I can’t be telling people what to do with out learning something myself. I evolve as I teach, and the things I ask students to do has changed and become simplified over the years. Today one of the things I try to get across to a class is so simple, but for some it’s hard to grasp. It is so obvious and yet not easy to do. I demand that they enjoy themselves and my advice is just move on to something else if that’s not happening. After all the whole point of this is to have fun. If you ain’t enjoying it why bother? I explain to them that if they’re not excited by what they’re shooting I’ll know and so will everyone else. I even wrote this poem to make the point:
If it doesn’t excite you,
This thing that you see,
Why in the world,
Would it excite me?
That is it exactly…don’t stress, have fun, but say something!
