I’ve taken so many images, and have so many different favorites for so many various reasons. Social media, internet, and web-based portfolios are all great; but this online world we live in sometimes leads things to be a bit less personal. I believe that every image has a story to tell, and that’s what I love doing for my clients so much! I don’t always get a chance to tell the story behind every image though–what I love about it, what makes it special to me. So, I thought I would start a weekly blog post that featured one of my favorite images…deconstructed. The story behind it, the reasons I love it (whether they are technical reasons of lighting/composition/etc., or emotional ones about what and why the image makes me feel). So check back every week–some of these shares will be personal ones, and others will come from clients’ sessions past and present…one of your images might be featured here!
I love this image because I feel like I’m right there with them again, at that place, that time, that moment. And then when it’s turned into black and white….
I feel like everything BUT that moment is stripped away. It doesn’t matter anymore when it was or where it was. All that’s left is that moment between mother and child, and it becomes less of a visual art, and more of an emotional one.
Not that color images can’t be super emotional as well, or that black and white will instantly turn a photograph into something deeper, but sometimes on certain images it has that affect to me. And it stops me in my tracks and makes my heart swell, so I thought I would share :). Happy Friday everyone!
