Photography is not just about figuring out the right aperture, lens sharpness or your camera settings. It’s also about important elements such as controlling light and shadows; proper posing, artful storytelling and image editing. A picture without a story is just that: a superficial picture. Without a story, the photography has no depth, no personal meaning, no emotion. An image with a story is the catalyst in triggering a chain reaction of emotions making it memorable, iconic and impactful. A portrait that lacks controlled light direction is flat. A client posed improperly will not look their best. Editing can transform an ordinary photo into an extraordinary image. Photography is an art form that requires a lot of skill, patience and knowledge in all of these areas.
