Photography Rules Get Thrown Out the Window
The so called 'Rules' go right out the window when I shoot. First, it's the experience or engaging with my subject that gets me jazzed about photography. Second, I make decisions about the vibe I want to create in the image while I'm interacting with my subject. I quickly consider the available light, color and mood on set; the time of day does not matter, I'm not afraid of shooting at high noon or any time of day for that matter. I can find something interesting that's happening in the moment to match the vibe I'm looking for. I don't care about being perfect or following some B.S. rules listed on a flickr group or similar forums. It's my shot and my artistry...there are no rules.

Breaking the Rules, Have Fun! - Lightenupandshoot Style
I'm in the middle of a world tour (tour dates here). Shooting commercial gigs, presenting and having Lightenupandshoot Tag Along/Workshops (NYC, Dallas, LA, London, Amsterdam and Medellin). I still have time to shoot for myself and shoot with photographer friends.
This video is shows me breaking the rules so I can have more fun on the shoot. I like the challenge of minimal gear to great interesting shots. In this video I'm doing the unexpected: using a cheapo ringflash for a main light and a wide angle lens. What's sexy about that? Hmmm...look at the images.
