GAME THEORY by Sean Perry

Game theory is a mathematical construct that determines an optimal course of action based on the logical choice being sleected from available options. It is a buzz word in many circles these days, being applied to everything from economics to evolutionary biology. A simple truth of this system is that the fewer options available, the higher the probability that success will be achieved.

The fundamentals class illustrates this concept perfectly. They have one camera, one lens and a single type of b&w film. There are no flash units or tripods. Within these limitations a beautiful phenomenon occurs in which the distance between emotion and final image is reduced. Free from the fog of unnecessary choices, these students enjoy a more intimate relationship with their subject.

A limited choice of tools increases the probability of making a successful image. They have given themselves a better chance to be lucky, to be in the moment.

Complex concepts can be stated in simple equations and metaphors. The medium by it's very nature is a simplification. Placing a frame around a scene, focusin on a particular point, exaggerating contrast and tonality. These are all tools to plae heightened interest around a subject and reduce the peripheral.

In one still frame, the power of life force and expanse of the human condition can be simplified and communicated across class, culture and time. The making of this magic is frequently lost when the method or equipment clutters the attention of the moment.

I have observed artisans who act with a determined will to master their toolbox in order to magnify expressive intent. I strive to instill a desire in my students to earn their tools, to grasp what will make plain the story of an image, not convolute it, to resist being seduced by the latest, greatest shiniest widget.

Elite athletes will often say "I give myself the best chance to win" They focus on what the moment requires and edit out the superfluous. It's a fundamental element of how to elevate and respond.

Photography is about gettin to the heart of an image - which is greater than it's subject. Strong teachers transcend material, identify a path of focused attention and illuminate a destination of expressive imagery.

It is the difference between teaching and inspiring...
