Beauty, complexity, style. These are the defining characteristics of fashion photography. It doesn’t have to be about an article of clothing or an accessory. Sometimes, it’s just about a “look”.
We all have our beliefs about religion, society, politics, sex, etc. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, an image can sum it all up in one sixtieth of a second.
With a portrait you are trying to define a person’s personality. You try to find that perfect look or posture that says all you need to know about them in that moment in time.
You really want to illuminate the vastness of a room when shooting interiors. It is up to you to make even the smallest rooms seem like cathedrals.
One must remain humble when tasked to shoot scenery and landscapes. Because when the shutter clicks – you realize – that even the most beautiful reproduction will never be able to capture all of nature’s majesty.
