referring to the post title: when i first heard about this project, i was thinking it would look best in black and white, with a solid dark backdrop behind the family’s portraits. nice and simple, and let the subjects/people speak for themselves. i also like how b&w seems to encourage people to examine the parts of a photo that matter the most (logically, at least). however, the Hospital was really thinking they wanted color — which would show off nicely the traditional clothing that many of the families will most likely wear. sooooo, here’s my final answer: i think i will just post the photos here in black and white, with the intention of composing that way, while being mindful of the color mostly in my lighting.
Wivine and her two-year-old son, Junior, have fun while trying to get ready for the photo. not sure if this is ‘the one,’ but if i don’t post it here, no one will ever see it. i also loved the “Cat in the Hat” creation on the wall behind Wivine.
Anne Marie and her two-year-old son, Alexsony, in their living room. The blanket behind their couch seemed like a fairly nice, nondescript backdrop.
wow…i guess i should have just started this part of the post “…dear diary.”
