Interview with Photographer Stefan Ruiz.

Ruiz is a charismatic guy with an eye for interesting subject matter. I find it intriguing that Ruiz is influenced by painters, Flemish specifically. The lighting depicted in the paintings he references are more interesting to me than his own mug-shot style flat lighting. I would like to see him break free of the two lights flanking the camera set up and give the subject more shape and form with light. The Flemish  masters understood light and how important it is to the overall impact of the image. Check out Rembrandt lighting
