Stacy Bass (@stacybassphoto), Miguel Flores-Vianna (@miguelfloresvianna), and Ngoc Minh Ngo (@minh_ngoc) share with us their take on what the world looks like through the lens of an Instagram pro.
Stacy has a passion for capturing light, color, and the essence of a piece. Composition, order, and saturated color are trademarks of her work whether in an interior or a garden.
With gardens and flowers, I prefer to shoot at dawn or dusk to avoid shadows, but if I'm out and about in the middle of the day, I look for shadow play. It works best with solid color and/or very saturated backgrounds.
Miguel photographs some of the world’s most sought-after interiors and gardens. He is a curious soul by nature, and “how people live” is a driving force in his work.
I love courtyards, and the fact this was so brightly painted was added value. Last time I was in Seville, I tried a few times to shoot this image, but the light was never right. Finally on the last morning, the sun came out and the yellow came alive.
I love pictures that seem to be taken in that split second when the photographer recognizes a great moment, but somehow I do not seem to have that touch. This dog, Bobo, is very well trained and he heard the command to stay put by the door.
Ngoc Minh Ngo
Ngoc Min Ngo creates ethereal photography that seems to stop time. Her signature is painterly, composed images with an intangible quality.
As a photographer I'm trained to look at everything, and I'm always sensitive to colors, light, and pattern.
Photography begins with looking and developing your own vision, and then having the technical skills to translate what you see into a photograph.
