One of my absolute favorite photographers is Dan Winters, and I had the incredible pleasure of seeing him speak at the Eddie Adam’s Workshop last year. His photographs cover so many different themes and subjects, everything from celebrity portraiture to aircraft cockpits. I can’t help but be inspired by the versatility of his interests and his ability to capture them all. Our first assignment in Advanced Lighting class was to find artificially lit images that inspire us, and attempt to recreate the lighting. I went with an amazing portrait on Winter’s site, and my good friend Andrew Davidson was kind enough to lend me his profile.
