Congratulations to our Top Pic of the Week, Evan Lewis. Read to learn more about the production of his photos.
How long have you been a photographer & how did you begin your journey?
I have been making photographs for almost 4 years now. I first became interested in photography while taking a base level photo course in university to fill up credit hours - and I fell in love with photography.
How would you describe your photographic style?
Right now, I feel I don’t have a particular style. I’m in a season more of experimentation with different film stocks, focal lengths, and subject matters. Experimentation has been helpful in finding a rhythm of how I like to create, what comes naturally, and where I need to grow my technique and concepts.
What is your favorite genre to shoot? What tips do you have for shooting some of your favorite genres?
Environmental portraiture is especially fun for me. It is very exciting to capture people in their context, doing what they are passionate about. Learn to spend time with people without your camera. Then, making portraits of them in the future will be even more successful.
What advice or tips would you give to other photographers regarding finding their style?
Be willing to try something completely foreign. “Failure” is only truly failure if you don’t pull yourself up and continue making photographs.
Do you own multiple cameras? Which is your favorite?
At the moment I shoot Fuji X-T2, a Canon A1 35mm SLR, and a Pentax 6x7. The Pentax is heavy and expensive to shoot, but it is by far my favorite to create with.
What gear are you hoping to add to your collection?
The Fuji 56mm f1.2 is an excellent portrait lens, and I’ve been saving up for a few months now!
