Emile Zola once said, The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work.

Compose the shot. Press the shutter!

The lazy artist produces nothing and their talent soon becomes a barren wasteland.

    I agree with this Patricia. I’ve seen this with student’s I worked with. Sometimes the most naturally bright feel they don’t have to work as hard, but they end up with less to show. Agnes xx
