Black and White – A Portrait of Togetherness

Sometimes the strength of an image is in the details.

Yesterday I was editing this photography shoot and came across this image. I noticed what a strong image of togetherness this image was when cropped tightly. Timeless coupledom captured.

Winter Portrait and a Return To Black and White

winter portrait

As spring is just around the corner, I thought I would show one of my favorite winter portraits while the snow is still on the ground. Reflecting my current preference for shooting, the image is in timeless black and white.

I find myself returning more and more to black and white, returning to the style of photography that made me fall in love with the medium. Perhaps this is how it often goes. We start out in photography for love, then twist what we do to meet our clients needs in order to make a living, but in the end we find we need to return to the style of shooting we love. It seems I am slowly completing that circle, black and white is coming to the forefront plus an interesting (non-commercial) project in its infancy. Stripping away all the fakeness of photoshopped images in their over-processed ways, and going back to the basics, photography is becoming interesting again.

Business photography continues to be busy  in 2015. This client required a classic head shot to be used on the website and printed media for a company in the petroleum industry. Clients want fresh, up to date and eye catching images, and white backgrounds seem to be the hot trend.

We offer business head shots with full retouching and a quick turn around time. Pricing includes copyright-free, full resolution files suitable for all virtual and publication requirements.

One Image Four Ways – Studio Photography – Red Deer, Alberta

Each year I photograph many head shots. I thought in today’s post I would share a few different looks you can achieve from the same head shot image. The vast majority of the head shots I do are shot for use in websites, for business cards or publications. Many are the classic business portrait. Sometimes, however, it is nice to alter the classic image just a little to make it more eye catching and fresh, especially on-line where a picture that is a little different makes people stop and look.

The first image is a classic color studio image shot against a grey background, grey is a nice neutral to use as a background, especially if the shot will be used in different applications.

The second image is again in color but a bit desaturated. This gives a fresher more modern look.

The third image is even more desaturated plus has increased contrast. This creates a more stylized image as it is floating between color and black and white.

The final image is black and white. Always a favorite. Timeless and classic.

I always like it when a business portrait is altered just a little for on-line use. The image seems to have more personality and makes the image stand out.
