Why I do not do selective coloring on my gorgeous photos. Sessions here are about empowerment and self-esteem. In order to properly uplift our clients, we put all the focus on our clients. Not just their face, but their expressions, how their hair caresses their shoulders, how their arms rest on their body, how they move, etc. When the editing process begins some portraits are meant to be in black and white and some are meant to be in full glorious vibrant colors. In our galleries you will not find muted tones, you find vibrancy.
Sometimes in our VIP community, I will post an image that suits both black/white and color. I love to let the community say which one they love the answers are always different. It is fun to see how one week someone says black and white then the next set they say color.
Black and white takes away color focusing and allows the viewer's eyes to see the emotion of the images as well as the subject.
Color images: as the viewer your eye always goes to the brightest part of the image first then the subject.
Selective color takes away from the subject and puts the focus on the blob of color in the image.
My goal is timeless, empowering, gorgeous, vibrant, portraits that will never look out of place. Selective coloring is a trend, it has a shelf life and will be tacky before long.
