“Someone said to me, early on in film school… if you can photograph the human face you can photograph anything, because that is the most difficult and most interesting thing to photograph. If you can light and photograph the human face to bring out what’s within that human face you can do anything.”
Overheard a girl say she hated her literature class. She thinks that the stories are outdated and nobody can relate to them anymore.

You’ve been enjoying classic literature without even knowing it!
Fashions differ, societies vary, and our technology has advanced, but humans are essentially the same when it comes to stories. We enjoy a good love story. We understand pain and loss. We laugh at blunders. We root for the hero. We wish for a happy ending. Don’t disregard something just because it is “old.”
