Which Do you favor
Tonight a friend of mine and I were discussing a recently shot photo of mine. Coincidently, the subject was on one of my favorites; black and white photography. A good friend will give you constructive critisism. A great friend will get up at 2:00 A.M and log onto his computer to talk photography with you. I think if my buddy Sherman Snyder lived any closer than the 110 miles that seperate us, he would drive to my front door to give me constructive critisism at 2:00 A.M. Sherman, never sleeps like me, and is great for troubleshooting anything photography. He has disected everything from lighting setups to assembling the 86 inch PLM from Paul Buff. He looked at the photo and immediately thought it would be more dyanmic as a black & white. While the client I shot it for love it in color. Therefore this is more of a Chase Jarvis question to the public, "Which do you prefer photo A or photo B". Hit me back and let me know. I will tell you this much, my client definitely loves the photo one particular way over the other. I am curious to know how many other will agree with that style. I will follow up in this blog by posting the client's preference only after comparing the results of your choices. So show this blog around the office, take it to Starbucks with you, discuss it at the dinner table during family time, or make it a school project. Just give me your opinions.
