youth sucks

lunes, 4 de octubre de 2010 | |

Me lo encontré en un blog de un fotógrafo. Hizo ésta lista para una plática que iba a dar en un congreso de photo en tokyo:


...four rules that I thought were essential for any young photographer trying to survive:
1. Have talent. (Talent is not when your friends tell you they love your work, but when people who don't like you have to admit it's good.)

2. Understand how the world works. (Not just globally, but on a macro level. Understand what people need and don't need. Understand when to approach people and when not to. Develop social skills.)

3. Choose good friends. (There's nothing like an effective network.)

4. Be modern. (Don't do anything that looks like it's someone else's work. Stay on top of technology. Engage on multiple platforms.)

pero lo que más me gustó fue éste comment:

These are each very good, important points. But, by the time a young photographer achieves an understanding of how the world truly works, they're no longer young.

Indeed.
