Thinking Outside The Box – By Kevin Landwer-Johan

Articles by Kevin Landwer-Johan focusing not only on the ‘box’ (camera) we use as our means of capturing images but also on the art of photography.

Taking pictures involves engaging both our intellectual and technical skills in using our cameras. It’s also necessary to express our creative and artistic intuitions so our images convey meaning.

Through these articles, my books and e-zines, online courses, and in-person workshops my aim is to share information about photography and my continually growing passion for it.

I’m open to feedback, so please remember to leave comments and ask questions.
