My photographic approach: see the frame and focus on a detail.
Give a picture all its meaning: structure an image to make it “taking”, to contrast it or to make it ethereal, use depth of field or focused on a subject: as technics for an oriented capture.
Trigger a sensation, create a reaction and provide emotion: the three essential goals for a successful photo. A picture has to tell a story and you’re the way to make it live.
Capture the moment at the right time. In this case, the equipment is sufficient by itself (IPhone, Leica).
Sometimes, I use the post prod and graphical tools (computer) to help me get the desired effect: blur, double exposure, …
Then, my process involves editing a photo until I reach a surreal dimension. That’s the case for visual art, involving portraits.
