Atlanta Fine Art Photographer/Instructor/Writer
Lance A. Lewin is mostly a self-taught photographer learning camera skills and a wide scope of perspectives from a richly filled combination of studying the pioneers of photography in the mid to late 19th Century and masters of the 20th century. In addition, studying art history, drawing and design at Albany State University, all in the pursuit of developing Lewin's own artistic interpretations and narratives.
Lewin presents most work as black and white fine art compositions. Post-production parallels the manipulations of traditional wet darkrooms, like corrections to luminance and chromatic dynamics. Though a lot of Lewin's work cannot be deemed as "Straight Photography", nonetheless, Lewin stays clear of trends that can lead to what some refer to as hyper-reality, and instead, maintains a photographic canvas that does not transcend the natural psycho-physiological characteristics of a photograph, thus presenting work evoking a sense of reality and authenticity.
Lewin is hoping to learn both new ideas from members and offer insights/concepts that have helped his photography career.
