Then next I took pictures of my best friend Kathryn and her 3 year old son Carson. Carson is wild and crazy and sometimes Kathryn wants to pull her hair out but their unconditional love for one another was what I most wanted to capture in my pictures. So, we went to one of the local parks and while they played and looked at things, I took pictures. Trying to capture that unspoken bond between a mother and her child. I think all of the pictures I took capture that because you cant hide your true feelings for another person from the camera.
I love to take pictures of people doing anything to express love or any other emotion. The expressive element is definately what I wanted to focus most on for this assignment.
This next picture is the picture I want to use for the class critique. It is of Kathryn and her son Carson walking around the park. I like this picture because they are holding hands and looking at one another, once again showing their love for each other. I also like the water and trees in front of them. It gives a very calming effect to the picture.
In the photoshopped photo I enhanced the contrast and brightness. Then I kept the subjects in color and made the rest of the photo black and white. I did this because I want the main focus of the viewers to be on Kathryn and Carson. I really like how this picture turned out because despite most of the picture being black and white, there are still some really vivid colors in this picture.
In the photoshopped photo I enhanced mainly the green in his shirt but I also enhanced all the colors and the contrast between them all.
