“I think good lighting is in the eye of the beholder” says Photographer Chris Burkard about how he shoots. “I love looking at the workof the old masters and they would find ways to manipulate light…” Indeed, he’s one of the more popular photographers to pop in the past couple of years. For Chris, he tells Silber Studios in a video (after the jump) that he stresses about angles.

“Sometimes it can be the difference between standing up and shooting and squatting down and shooting.”

Chris thinks that images don’t come easy to him and instead it’s all about studying a scene. He also states that he doesn’t like replicating things. Instead he wants to create his own mark.
