I recently referred to this image as it reminded me how much courage is required to be creative.
This was a job interview where I was asked to demonstrate a “How to” photography lecture.
Luckily this allowed me to have my camera and take this picture. I think it is straight out of the movie Office Space. Very scary. Needless to say, I did not get the job.
(Just look at the enthusiasm I was creating.)
What would have taken courage is to take a similar picture of my committee during my dissertation defense. Unfortunately, the weight of the moment, serious demeanor of the committee members and consequences if these four men decided they didn’t like me. I couldn’t take the picture.
(I did bring the camera, but couldn’t do it.)
