Let’s talk about mood for a second. Some people love black and white portraits because they elicit such emotion. They make you focus on whatever the artist wants. I have black and white photos everywhere, so don’t think I don’t appreciate them when I say the following. Lately, I’ve had such a strong connection to the “vintage” style that is so popular. You see it a lot in my work, especially everything I was doing during the summer. I tried to back off for a little while and focus on capturing more highly saturated portraits or to allow myself to play with black and whtie effects more. However, I’m currently working on putting all of Andrea and Steve’s wedding photos on photos.maganslens.com and while I was looking through their photos with the sunset in the background, I couldn’t get it out of my mind to want to play with the vintage effect again. So, here you have it. I LOVE these photos as they naturally are, but I can’t tell you how much I’m diggin’ them now. The architecture seems to pop a little more. They’re much more moody and emotional. Maybe you don’t like them? Let me know. Tell me why. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
