Henri Cartier-Bresson

January 28, 2008

The last few days I spent quite a bit of time looking through the portfolio’s of photographers outside of the wedding industry. I regularly find myself looking in other area’s for inspiration and am always in awe of how many photographers there are out there creating amazing images. While I was jumping around from site to site I came across an interview of the late Henri Cartier-Bresson by Charlie Rose. If you get a chance, check it out and notice how Henri Cartier-Bresson explains composition… “satisfaction to the eye”. So simple.
