HW 1 Photographer Blog Post

The photographer that stood out the most to me is Joey Lawrence. Going through his website and his work it amazes me at how beautiful all his shots are. He does mostly portrait shots but, there’s something about those shots that capture your attention. What stands out the most to me is the composition, the light, and how saturated the colors are in his pictures. In his pictures you could feel the emotion behind the picture, in his portraits the eyes reflect the person’s emotions. For example, in the picture above the composition of the photo is amazing you have a little bit of background and then you have part of the window where the sun is shining through and you could actually some of the rays peeking through. At the same time, it’s not too far out where you see too much background. The look that is captured on the girl’s faces show sadness and scared. If you look through his Oxfam: The Mosul Corridor project you see what these children need to face and that expression are captured in these girls faces.
