How to make in impact with your photos

Twist Photography

Thank you to LBK’s first guest blogger, Kory Chase of Twist Photography. In today‚Äôs digital age, we are never more than an iPhone click away from a timeless memory.

Why the answer to your question is “No”

Sorry, but no

When I show a first draft of a project to a client, I brace myself for their response. “I like it,” they begin. “But can we…” Here’s why the answer is always a big, fat “No.” “But can we center it?” (the rule of thirds) I guess I can center it.

And while you won’t see my name on a hard cover in the window at Barnes and Noble (not yet anyway), I did make great strides in making my goal a reality. I …
