One of our greatest living photographers, Jay Maisel, speaks often about “going out empty.” Jay carries a camera all the time as does Arthur Meyerson and Seth Resnick. I can’t remember ever seeing any of teem without one. Each of these guys give wonderful talks and awesome workshops. Jay always hammers home the importance of going out empty. Some days it can be raining so hard that you can’t go out. If you’re empty you can see the truck through the wet window.
