Rebaz is a person who is quick to voice his concerns. Quick to express that an assignment was too hard, or that the camera we gave him was too old. I think he spoke so quickly because he has a particular confidence that he is able to make good images, and he doesn’t want anything to get in his way.
Rebaz was another of our return students, and we were curious to see how much he would remember in the two years between workshops. He remembered plenty. And while he was initially disappointed that he was covering some of the same material, he quickly learned that he could explore those same ideas at a whole other level.
I told Rebaz that I was expecting a lot from him. I knew that he was capable. I pushed him. And he seemed to appreciate that. I absolutely appreciated the way he rose to the challenge.
