Happy +The Arcanum
Anniversary to Me! I can't believe it's been a year already!
I joined the Arcanum on the fateful day of the 9th of July back in 2014 after +Ron Clifford
sent me an invite. I had signed up a few months earlier and was patiently waiting for someone too notice me amongst the hoards of people waiting in line and I got lucky!
My journey started on that day and I joined Ron's Cohort of the Brave! Here I met some amazing people who immediately welcomed me and encouraged me too make my first post. I nervously posted up my first batch of images. After taking the plunge I was calmed by the supportive feedback I got from everyone and so started my learning process. The idea within Cohorts is that you share images, receive feedback, give feedback to your peers and grow your own style and creative processes. Each Master creates a journey for apprentices too follow and grow. You have tasks to complete. things to research and processes to learn, very exciting and stimulating stuff!
Over my time with the awesome Cohort of the Brave I learnt so many things, gained an abundance of knowledge and slowly my photographic style and knowledge began to evolve. I had amazing Critique sessions with Ron and he shared with me so many tips and tricks that I added to my knowledge base and took under my creative wing. As I progressed through the levels I literally began to feel apart of the cohort family, and had such a good time sharing and learning within the Cohort of the Brave.
Once I finished my final critique within the Cohort of the Brave I was added to the Level 20 Lounge where I was too patiently wait for my next invite into the brand new and exciting Sphere 2 experience.
The Level 20 lounge is a great place where I was able to continue my learning journey and add some more skills and knowledge to my creative repertoire.
I also spent alot of time within the Grand Library, where there is an endless abundance of Tutorials, Video Critiques, and recorded Hangouts. There is literally hours and hours of tips and tricks and knowledge to spend hours trawling through, that is always at your reach even whilst waiting for invites for the next Sphere.
Now I am in Sphere 2 under Ron Clifford. I can clearly see a marked improvement within my photography and my post processing skills. I am loving it! Sphere 2 is a fresh experience that we are pioneering as we go. Very exciting stuff! I have already challenged my thoughts and processes so much within this Sphere, it is truly an exciting time for me.
I can't imagine where I would be now if I had not decided to embark on the Arcanum experience, I strongly encourage anyone wondering if they should sign up for this experience to do so. There is so much too learn and so far too go down your creative journey that this amazing experience can help you with!
Thank you too +Trey Ratcliff +Curtis Simmons
and +Peter Giordano
for brainstorming this amazing experience into reality. I has changed my photography forever and I will be forever grateful too you all! I have shared some images with you of my Pre Arcanum work and my current work, tell me do you see as much of a change that I do? #AmazingArcanum #Arcanum
