I want to thank everyone for your responses to yesterday’s blog. It was incredibly insightful and a lot of fun. What I love about yesterday’s exercise is it proves the point of the old adage “art is in the eye of the beholder.” We took the same image, applied two different treatments, and presto, the jury came in with mixed reactions. The majority felt the most passionate about the black and white – and if I were to market this image I would probably have picked the B/W simply because it appealed to a larger audience. The key point here is when you’re building a portfolio keep in mind one image can be worked several different ways. Don’t pigeon hole yourself into always shooting then processing things exactly the same way. Experiment a little, get feedback and who knows, you may get the best of both worlds.
