From Our Editors
Bobby Cornelius snaps images with techniques learned at The New York Institute of Photography and honed over the course of more than 15 years in the field. During his sessions, he captures the dimples of graduating seniors, high kicks of cheerleaders, and chubby cheeks of infants whose eyes have yet to open. He also documents newlyweds in their gowns and tuxes, relying on the sun’s rays to add halos of light or illuminate faces. When not drawing on natural light, Bobby brings his own professional lighting equipment and backdrops to on-location shoots.
Bobby shares his image-crafting wisdom during private or group photography classes, whose topics range from camera basics to advanced outdoor lighting techniques. He also takes on photo-restoration projects, clearing the stains and wrinkles from old snapshots and dentist-office magnets.
