These photos by Pete Souza, recapping his 2012 year with the President of the United States, caught my eye for a number of reasons, so I thought I’d share.
First off, regardless of your political leanings, it’s great to get a look behind the scenes, at some of the most powerful people in the world in off-beat and very human candids.
But secondly, as you look at Souza’s work, you can really appreciate the eye and skills of a professional photographer. Look at the way he composes his shots: each tells a story, and draws us in. His exposure is right on: shadows, depth of field, shutter speed.
It’s been said by many, if you want to improve your photography, look at the work of others, and appreciate what they have done. Here’s a great opportunity to do just that.
If you have the time, look at all 84 images, or bookmark it so you can come back later. And the captions are pretty good too. Did you know there’s a White House beer?
Let us know your thoughts, and have a great weekend.
