Playing with Textures
When I realized I had not changed my profile picture since I started this blog, I asked Beto to take some new pictures of me. There is this old railroad bridge I had been wanting to check out for some time - and we finally went!!! It was a blast just the two of us! It was such an eye opening experience for me, because I finally had the chance to be the other side of the lens. Ever since that afternoon my approach to directing my clients has changed. The candid idea is great -- but there has to be some directing involved. Without it you feel awkward and uncomfortable.... direction is a good thing!
This is my favorite image Beto captured that day! I will post the rest later this week. The first image is my original post processed image - the second is a little experiment with textures. It isn't a dramatic difference, but I think it adds some character. If I was interested in having a huge picture of my face on my wall - it think it would make a sweet canvas!
What do you think???
