Sophie with Glasses - Boston, MA
As a photographer, I see things differently.
Ansel Adams, the great photographer, put it so well when he said, "You don't take a photograph, you make it.” And to make a photo, you have to see it first.
When I make photos, like this picture of my granddaughter Sophie, I'm thinking about light coming from all sides giving a nice round shape. Colors are important, from the same pallet. Sunglasses in the small hands of a one year old add a counterpoint of interest. Her mother is smiling to underscore the joy of childhood.
I make a consistent effort to simplify the composition in all the pictures I make. You'll see this theme when viewing my website, www.brossphoto.com. And this isn't a format I add to the scene, it is the way I see the subjects I record.
My vision is what I bring to every assignment. Do you see what I see? You may see what I see, but probably not the way I see it.
