TWiT Photo Ep. 22 with Vincent Laforet
He’s known as many things. Director. Photographer. Pulitzer Prize winner. But I bet you didn’t know that Vincent Laforet is a magician as well. With a few minutes left to the end of our live broadcast, Vincent disappeared, setting the viewers in the chatroom aflutter with questions about where he went. Ha! Actually, his entire building lost power! Fortunately, he left our viewers with a wealth of personal insights into his life as a photographer and tips on techniques – we even find out that he has a uber-cool and famous photographer dad. Vincent, we’re ready for Part II when you are :) Watch the video to learn more about Vincent; the following are his top three tips:
“Just because you can doesn’t mean you should and kiss”
“Choose your lens based on compression and foreground to background ratio – not based on how far you are from your subject.”
“The secret to great photography is heavily related to the photographs you do NOT take.”
