Okay this is a first, but each month we, here at lean green, would like to feature an artist.Â Kind of a shout out to all the creative people out there, give them some exposure and a type of online gallery opening.Â This month we are featuring an awesome photographer, Isaac Riley (Isaac’s Eye Photography).Â He has been rockin the camera for a couple years now and really taken off.Â Apart from shooting high fashion and glamour throughout California, Riley thows it down when it comes to weddings, events and portraits.Â He has truely come into his own.Â If nothing else leave Isaac some props for his mastery and we hope to see much more from him in the future.Â Below is some Q&A and a gammet of some of his shots.Â For more of Isaac’s photos, check out www.isaacseyephotography.com .
ME: How did you start?
ISAAC: It all started when I needed photos of myself to put on my MySpace.Â I put up a sheet and used light on either side of me.Â I had a friend take a photo of me and I did the same for him.Â After posting them on MySpace, MySpace users asked me who took the photos and how much.Â It’s been a long road in regard to photography.Â It took lots of money for one thing, but has been very rewarding.
ISAAC: America’s Next Top Model
ME: What do you look for when photographing?
ISAAC: I look to capture the essence and beauty of everything I focus on.Â Whether it’s landscapes or a photo of a person.
ME: How do you continue to push the edge and improve?
ISAAC: Learning things on my own and allowing myself to push for new creative ways to learn and build off of what was learned previously.
ME: Why do you do what you do?
ISAAC: I love the way it makes me feel, I feel free to do what I want without anyone telling me what to do.Â I see art while taking photos and the end result is always rewarding.Â And most importantly making people that I work with happy is always a plus.Â My inspiration comes from the ability to make known what I love through my work.
ISAAC: I would love to work for a modeling agency and shoot models from all over the world.
ME: How do you know when you got a good photo?
ISAAC: Clarity, great lighting, and capturing the person’s inner and outer being tells me that I took a good photo.
I’ve seen Isaac grow and improve and he has now reached a level where he can conquer the world.Â If like his stuff, let him know.Â He’s also connected with MySpace, email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
