This is excellent. I am not, generally speaking, a fan of the inspirational talk format but this talk by photographer Chris Orwig had me hooked. It lasts for around an hour but that will feel like about five minutes – at least it did for me.
Chris starts in a predictable enough manner, talking about photography as process as opposed to end goal and how an amateur, childlike approach is best but very quickly both broadens and deepens his themes. He has obviously put a lot of thought into this presentation and it does a lot more than just skim the surface like so many others seem to.
Anyway, in my humble opinion, an hour spent watching this will not be wasted. One tip – don’t judge it on the first five minutes.
