Tell the story is the number one priority of Rosh’s photography. Although Rosh has his own style he is well versed in multiple photographic techniques and lets the vision of the client and the scene in front of him dictate how he approaches the creation of a photograph.
Some scenes require more intervention, while others need a let it happen approach. Rosh starts with few or no lights to see and understand the environment. He then gradually adds lights one at time until he achieves the look and feel necessary to tell the story and create his clients vision. Generally, one or two lights is all that is required.
