Creative Brief for: What Makes Us Feel Alive

From Adobe Studios:

Photographer Michael Aboya (@aboya.8 on Instagram) talks about his storytelling process to capture what makes us feel alive, shared during #adobemax.


From Michael on his Instagram post – The video is in the 16:9 aspect ratio)

I’ve always wondered what makes us who we are and what makes us feel alive ?
Through my journey in photography, I’ve had the pleasure of exploring the true essence of who we are, in love, happiness, freedom and so much more.

I had an amazing experience spending time with @adobe in Ghana. I got to share my story, creative process and how I use Adobe @lightroom to complete my stories. Super excited to see this inspiring video played and streamed at Adobe Max 2022.
