Sian is an experimental photographer using creative and surrealist approaches to her work while photographing not only people but inanimate objects. Her lecture was full of advice which I found to be very useful. Some of these included what is mentioned below.
Overall, Sian's work did stick with me as being hugely experimental, but she also encouraged a very forgiving, understanding, and practical approach to us when giving advice. I really enjoyed her positive mindset, too.
