What separates the good photographers from the GREAT photographers?
Technique and gear certainly play a role. That is seldom the most important element that distinguishes them. Renowned fashion photographer Lindsay Adler will explain how concept and personal style help differentiate you and move your work to the next level. What are you saying with your images? How will you light? Which lens? What other tools of the visual language will communicate your message? Lindsay will talk about finding your own style. She will discuss finding inspiration for memorable images, expressing a concept, and finally her favorite approaches for creating award-winning photographs.
