I wish I had a photographer’s eye or a highly developed visual aesthetic. But the fact of the matter is, I’m not a visual thinker. I’ve never been especially good with arranging things or making pretty pictures. I’m even lousy at puzzles. And let’s not even talk about swagging drapes. Yes, I do a fair amount of graphic and web design, and I’m happy with most of that work, but I wouldn’t call it groundbreaking. Functional and generally clean, yes, but groundbreaking? Nein, fraulein.
Which is to say, I have nothing but appreciation for those who know what they’re doing behind a camera, like the boyfriend, or like Mr. Kwong here. Of course, Louis’ job may have been made a little easier by his subject matter — I mean, the guy starts out ahead, right?
