About this deal

He has no sense of the rules of thirds, or spacing in general. There was a picture of a bust that, and I am not joking, he managed to cut the head off of. He either needed to step in to the picture or step out in almost every picture. The aspect ratio of every picture was extremely weird. Most of the pictures were 16:9, which doesn't make sense for a picture ratio (I assume he chose that aspect ratio because it filled the screen of his laptop?). When you don't follow the rules of thirds and you have an aspect ratio like 16:9 it ends up being very jarring in a way that I am certain was not intentional. I had one hour to kill in a bookstore and I didn't want to start a book I couldn't finish so when I spotted this book I thought "ooo pretty pictures! This should keep me occupied." Sigh...... The basics, like lighting or focus, are often ignored in the book. Some of the most frustrating pictures are a result of this (the elephant picture, as an example). One key omission from the wedding guest list is Elton John, Brooklyn’s godfather, who is touring during the wedding. However, his husband David Furnish is expected to be there as his Brooklyn’s godmother Elizabeth Hurley.

The fact that Penguin - a well-respected publishing company - would attach itself to such a diabolical collection of pictures is a disgrace to literature itself. I recently saw an article saying that Brooklyn's photography is better than Cole Sprouse's. First of all the two have completely different styles, second of all Cole is actually good. Literally, I stumbled upon this book while I was at work. My working theory is that a customer left it on the floor, partially hidden view, just waiting for me to trip and nearly catch my death. What I See is a book for teenagers, by a teenager, which gives Brooklyn’s fans broader insight into his world seen through his unique and creative perspective,” Managing Director Francesca Dow tells The Independent. “Teenagers lives are filled with the visual image and we know Brooklyn’s photos resonate with his huge young following, who avidly follow his life through his photography. We are proud to bring these images together in a book for a young generation for the first time.” This time, Brooklyn’s poetic caption reads, “I like this picture, it’s out of focus but you can tell a lot is going on”. The footballer, turned model, turned photographer clearly has no aptitude when it comes to words and yet somehow, his editor and publishers allowed this book to become a reality.


The caption next to a shadowy photo of an elephant reads: “Elephants in Kenya. so hard to photograph, but incredible to see.” The reason that Wrighton thinks this is one of the best photography books ever published is that, “if you ever feel like you have imposter syndrome as a photographer, remember that this book was published, printed and released.”

After working as a model, Brooklyn won a place at the Parsons School of Design in New York studying photography. The image in question is captioned “elephants in Kenya, so hard to photograph, but incredible to see” which by any means should never appear in a photography book. No matter what type of photographer you are, it shouldn't be too difficult to capture a decent picture of an elephant on safari so long as you know your camera and understand the golden exposure trio. he cannot, for the life of him, straighten his picture. The horizon line is always anywhere from 3% to 15% skewed. It makes me think that his camera's sensor may have been broken, because it is almost every picture except maybe three or four. There are some where it was obviously an stylistic choice to skew the picture, about 95% of the book is made up of...mistakes? I guess? New York publicist R Couri Hay told The Times: "This is the Hollywood version of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

You've got the son of sports and fashion royalty marrying an American billionaire's daughter, who also happens to be a beautiful actress." Didn’t plan this photo – Romeo and I were waiting to see our little sister’s ballet recital and we bought her flowers. I took this when we were waiting outside and I love it. He didn't take all the pictures in the book! The book is called What I See, but he didn't take all the pictures! He copywrote all the pictures as his own, but at least 7% of the book was made up of pictures that his friends or family members took. He doesn't even name the friends that took the pictures. Very weird choice, why didn't an editor stop him from doing this? This is what I mean when I say the book had no sense. Each chapter tells a different story through pictures by and of Brooklyn, and each will be accompanied by captions and passages of text. What I See documents many of Brooklyn’s travels around the world - California, New York, Greece, and Iceland among other destinations – as well as life behind the scenes at home with his family.
