One of the things I most appreciate having learned as a photographer are traditional camera and lighting techniques. The images you see here, required me to reach into my depth of knowledge to create this within the camera, not in Photoshop. Having learned to get it right in the camera has been my trademark for the past two decades.
Creative in-camera photography is essentially sculpting with light. Working with flash requires an understanding of the desired results before the shutter is pressed. Our eyes can’t perceive the different lighting ratios that create these results, but experience can give the maker a vision of what to expect.
I found great joy in creating these images in my studio as each one is truly unique and captures the essence of my client in different ways and has an energy that is authentic because the art of the moment was captured in-camera as it happened.
