The Grand Challenge remains — how to actually help someone to do this — to cross from general principle to actually holding great photographs (yours or a students) in your hand. Which is where all the complications set in, heh.
Exactly! Here in Academy of art (we don't have photography catedra, pnly on year of photography studies under other studies) only one professor tach students. And he like digital, coalge like colour photographs. Who don't give those king of photographs on final exam, will not pass it and no way to go further. That is on second year of four years. So, does he teach them to transform "rule of third" into theire style, or he just force them to do whatever is needed to pass that exam...
