(a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014)
Julia: pretending to be a French girl (it's our new favorite game!).
Well my friends, I firmly believe in self congratulation, and today I'm going to pat myself on the back because I've taken one of my most favorite photos that I've ever taken. I know not everyone shares my love for moody, black and white photos of non-smiling children, but I LOVE moody, black and white photos of non-smiling children!
I try. I really do. To process a fair amount of photos in color. Sometimes I get sick of all the black and white. But.......it pulls me back in 90% of the time. I've been toying with the idea for quite some time, of carving a niche out for myself in my local geographical area and specializing in B&W.
I do love color, but B&W photography speaks to my soul. Have I already shared this thought with you? Once I came across a phrase that goes something to the effect of "in color photos, you see the person, in black and white, you see the emotion." I really like that.
