Silencing The Critic with Brian Bowen Smith

Brian Bowen Smith speaks at Chicago Ideas Week about utilizing the creative process and relying on your subject to allow your work to reach it's potential. This amazingly successful photographer takes us through the successes and challenges of three different shoots all the while touting the importance of trusting your gut. The common misconception is that great shoots require a great investment. I love the fact that the first shoot he discusses was done for under $500.

Speaking for myself...the biggest takeaway from this talk is this: You know your craft already, great things can happen when you let go of control.

Not everyone is going to like your work, so what you do and let people say whatever they want.
