I was talking to some of my friends last night who were interested in using some of my photos – of PEOPLE! I normally get more reaction from my wildlife photos so I was a little surprised. In any case, I started looking back for some of my people photos from last year to send them. While I was at it, I figured maybe I should post a few more here. These are a couple that I sent them that I used to illustrate a combination of B&W and color to draw attention to a subject. This first one was just a scene from a rainy evening in Barcelona and this couple caught my eye walking down the street. The scene was a bit cluttered so I used the color to make them standout just a little more.
The second photo was taken on a street in Provence and was just a typical street scene but I thought the girl in the poster jumped out while also fitting into the scene of the people on the street. Again, I used the B&W background to make it pop even more. I don’t use this technique too often but I find it interesting on occasion…..all comments gratefully accepted!
