There is an art to capturing a photo that tells a story. You need to know what belongs in the frame and what to leave out, what to emphasize in the photo that adds to the story, and how to use light, shape, and color all to express meaning while lending aesthetic value to the image itself. Vincent LaforetPulitzer Prize-winning photographer and voted one of the "100 Most Influential People in Photography" by American Photogives a rare look into the art of photography through his lens as a master editorial and commercial photographer.
