For more than 25 years, photographer Ben Dang has told stories through his portraits. He uses a photojournalistic approach to shoot weddings, special events, and mothers making their deli-robbing sons return the sandwich, capturing the small, candid moments he says “usually go unnoticed.” However, Ben can also take more posed family portraits to capture a relaxed moment between couples, parents and a new baby, or extended families gathered into the frame.:m]]
Even Al Torres’ lightly posed shots exude the aura of candid photography, capturing close-ups of wide-eyed babies, carefree frames of expectant mothers, and black-and-white shots of the raw human form in an editorial style that landed him Best of Citysearch awards in 2006 and 2007. Peering through high-caliber Nikon lenses, Al cultivates winsome smiles within his studio, using a combination of natural and studio lighting to accentuate eye color and play down tattooed-on five o’clock shadows. After sessions, subjects can view the shots online or as contact sheet proofs and decide which prints to transform into custom photo albums, copyright-released digital images, or gallery wall prints.:m]]
