Some advice from Michael,
“Find a picture you really like, and copy it. See what you like and go with it. Learn basic editing, cropping, lighting, contrast. Look at other peoples work, don’t feel bad about your work. On a shoot take lots of shots.”
His style of photography is portraits, fashion, and weddings.
Michael was really approachable and interesting. I enjoyed learning the different types of photography he taught, especially the Camera Obscura technique.
