Motion-picture studio floors used to be all wooden and not smooth at all. This was difficult when moving a camera around on a dolly.
When you're used to looking through a stills lens and you have to capture an emotional moment, and that picture is not moving and yet it has to have impact, I think that's the first influence on my style.
Moving on, is a simple thing, what it leaves behind is hard.
It's far better to shoot a good picture than a good-looking picture.
