What’s Old is New Again & The Power of Color

A clients mother-in-law recently asked for a black and white rendering of a picture of her son and daughter-in-law, the moment after he saw her in her dress for the first time. 

Here is the original:


We loved the window light in this hallway, and soft focus, it provided a nice sense of romantic to that special moment.

In Black and White, the mood changes a bit…to me this feels more nostalgic than the full-colored photo, and considering the shot was taken back in June, that works for me.

After doing the pass on the black and white, I remembered we did the black and whites for their album in a cream-tone.  I think it adds back just a little more softness to the moment.
