During this time of social distancing and stay at home orders, sometimes the only way to stay connected with friends and family is through photos, videos and Zoom calls.
We’ve all had times when we have taken a selfie or photo and instantly deleted it because we didn’t like it. Or maybe you are on a Zoom happy hour or business meeting and you look at your image compared to others and can’t seem to get the lighting just right.
That’s one of the reasons I wanted to talk to Mark Comon from the Creative Photo Academy and Paul’s Photo in Torrance.
Mark and I met during one of the city of Torrance’s Arts Leadership meetings. We met again when he came on board to work with TOCA on the photo exhibit for the SouthBay Festival of the Arts. I’ve been following him on social media for a while and noticed that once the Covid crisis hit, he immediately started posting short videos about being creative and hints on how to take better, more creative photographs.
I thought, if there was one person out there that could help create better images, it would be him.
