The Tenants of Photography are Timeless

Photography today is amazing as technology continues to expand what is possible, yet the basic rules remain the same.

Creating portrait images remains the same throughout time. You work to create a composition by controlling light, positioning your subject within the image, while utilizing elements in the foreground and background of the image. So the more seamless and natural this appears in the image, the more elegant it is.

The best photography captures a moment in time and provides the viewer context to a deeper story that may leave one to wonder or look deeper into the image. With this site, I am also sharing historic images, edited to heal damage present in the images, as a means to educate on photography standards throughout time.
