The Contemplative Gorilla. Photograph by Steven Greenbaum. All Rights Reserved. See his website stevengreenbaumphotography.com This image was taken at the Miami Zoo. The subject seems to be thinking about what his plans are for the day.
I started in photography as a teenager by recording family trips and events with my fathers Nikkormat El on color slides. I was captivated by the luminance and colors of the family slide show. My goal was to get clear, sharp, bright photos that captured our experiences.
Now retired, I try to take images of scenes, people, animals and events that interest me. It can be anything and initially I try not to have preconceived notions about what I shoot. If I am not satisfied with the results I will return, if possible, to get the image that I see in my minds eye. I identify what , to me, is the subject of the image and then try to emphasize that subject by choice of composition, photographic technique and post-processing. My goal is to produce an image that evokes an emotional connection.
