Behind The Shots - Cityscapes in Black & White
This is my inaugural blog post and I'm excited to add this media to my communication mix in sharing my journey. With this post, I've chosen to dive a little deeper into a couple of photos that I shot earlier this year, recently posted to my galleries, and have been honored to have them printed and hung in the home of our very good friends. I'll provide some background into why these photos were shot and chosen, and insights to the post-processing applied.
Here's a color version of one of the photos. Which do you prefer? I think they're both great. This is one photo that works well either way. The B&W versions worked best for our friends given where they were to be hung, lighting, wall color and other wall art. The B&W versions were the right choice for them. The considerations around B&W versus color are many and worthy of another separate blog post in the future.
They ultimately chose to have them printed on metal with a semi-gloss finish. These were printed at my favorite local printer in St. Louis, Diversified Labs. Lastly, I'll cut this off with a shameless plug for the site that I started in the past year for selling my photos online, through Fine Art America and it's affiliate, Pixel.com. The pictures have been uploaded and are available for purchase there. Here's a link to my site.
