A Glimpse into the Heart...The Relationship Portrait
Nov 10, 2020 | By: Bev Walden
Portraits done in black and white add an additional layer of complexity to the subjects. The choice to appear void of color says something about the person, though what it says varies greatly between people.
We are sometimes asked if we ever get tired of creating black and white Relationship portraits.
The answer is always NO!
Though the processing has moved from reels and tanks in the darkroom to our computers and Lightroom, we look for the same qualities as we always did.
Though the printing has moved out of our basement to a printer in our production room, we must uphold the same standards.
It is our desire to keep our craft intact.
It is the WHY in our lives...why we teach, why we still operate our studio when many have already gone on to other things and why we stay determined to make a difference.
Though the portraits above were done 8 years ago, they are timeless.
The story is still relevant. The brothers are still best friends.
As the session rolled along and everyone got comfortable, some of the most enduring imagery was created.
This portrait of a young couple was done one week ago...still timeless, relevant and it will stand the test of time.
Though certain style dynamics have changed with the times, the standards remain.
And we strive every day to be the standard bearers.
