This presentation delves into the subject of how we as photographers perceive the composition in our viewfinder and how by altering our perspective, even slightly, the image will become more emotional, dramatic and powerful, both to the viewer as well as the photographer.  Minor White was once quoted as saying “Every image is a self portrait.”  I believe that to be true especially in cases of the photographer having a strong emotional connection to the subject.  However this shift in perspective is quite different from developing your own personal “style” of photography.  In this presentation Lewis will discuss and demonstrate the myth of style and how searching for it is actually hindering your own creative process.
