Get Closer

We all know by now the best zoom lens is any lens plus your feet.

Getting closer to your subject is an easy way to create more compelling images. But what does “closer” mean?

Engaging your subject and discovering what makes your subject compelling is the “closer” we need to tell great stories.

Start a conversation with the person your photographing. Read a book about that abandoned building you love shooting and maybe find someone who worked there. Discover the science behind that flower in your foreground.

Stories are everywhere, waiting to be found.
