Movies for Photographers: The Queen of Versailles

Photo by Lauren Greenfield / Magnolia Pictures
Documentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield has her roots firmly in photography, and that's why it's essential for photographers interested in developing their signature style and voice to critically watch Greenfield's framing and camera techniques, the way she makes the subject absolutely essential in her shots, and the way she uses still photographic techniques to create verite style filmmaking. Released near the end of 2012 to great acclaim, The Queen of Versailles is a masterwork of storytelling, with one arresting scene and image after another. The following video interview of Ms. Greenfield will also help fill in how she made the transition from still photographer to documentarian, without ever really leaving still photography. Both enrich her art and strengthen her signature style, and you'll see why she is receiving so much acclaim in our field.
