PHOTOGRAPHY Let me show you what I see

Studio photography
is for control freaks—

Of which, I happen to be one. Lighting, color, composition, and quality of image can be made perfect when having a controlled environment. I'm also very much engaged in outdoor, on location, candid and event photography. In these scenarios, you have to make the best of what you have. You grow as a photographer when you're forced to experiment with ever-changing lighting and focal points with each second. Techniques you would never think to try in a controlled environment can produce new success.

I've seen a lot of technically accurate photographs from the pit with boring composition. Trying to capture the action, character of the performer, or magnitude of the event takes more than technical skills. These performances are the most challenging and fun as we have no control over the lighting or movement of the subject and we have to constantly adjust our settings or miss out close up, drum solo, or sweet jump.

In the studio, we have control over lighting, color, composition, and quality of image, but again they are only part of taking a good portrait. You have to engage with your subject in a short amount of time, and move them to demonstrate who they are or what you want to convey.

Candid, engaging moments of love

I've witnessed some photographers controlling and posing every aspect for wedding photography. It is exhausting for the bride, groom, or entire wedding party. Although, I do interact with people, weddings are not the controlled environment of a studio. More than anything, I love a good smile or embrace. Capturing people among their friends and loved ones during their special event, is an honor for me.

Whether it be a corporate function, music festival, or protest rally, this is where you can find the most candid photography. It is not always fun, but it is always real. The key is to make the adjustments accordingly, and not interfere with the subject. As soon as they realize you're there, you lose the candid shot.

I grow as a photographer with every session, and I gain XP every time I push the shutter button. Working with other professionals is a great way  to bounce new ideas off each other, stay creative, and maintain awareness of other work and trends in the industry.

My sessions focus on the individual beauty that we all possess—boosting confidence, reassuring our strengths about oneself, or bringing it to the surface. I want everyone leaving with the sense that they are more than they realized. The key is to make the subject feel comfortable. If you can do that, then you can get the best out of them.

Like portrait photography, you have to know your subject. Getting to know your client's brand and message is vital, but good communication is the key. Being able to envision what your client wants to convey creates a successful commercial or architectural shoot.
