Photographer of the Week – Yuping Chen
By Joseph Tepper, November 19, 2015 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

Yuping Chen is an underwater photographer to watch over the next few years. With her diverse subject matter, well-balanced portfolio, and a calendar filled with speaking engagements, this former lawyer is taking her case to the sea, and is producing results that will win over the hearts and minds of even the most cynical of persons.

But what strikes me most about Yuping’s work is her use of composition in conjunction with the moment. Her timing is on point and her framing is interesting. And what the viewer is left with is a thoughtfully constructed image with a real sense of being present while Yuping was shooting.
