Start at the Bottom

Chicago's Theater District, Stanley Kubrick 1949

I’ve always said that talent is overrated.  Most people can become really good at most things given enough deliberate practice.  These photos by Stanley Kubrick, just a lowly photojournalist for Look magazine in 1949, began to show the sort of grand cinematic view he would later become famous for.  Kubrick wasn’t born a great director.  He became one through constant, deliberate practice.  Once you can learn to tell a story with a single, static image, adding movement and sound aren’t as hard.  Sometimes, the best way to get to the top is to start at the bottom.  More here.
