black & white: soul seekin'
Sometimes, black and white is worth the fight. This past weekend I had the pleasure of working with Alexis Michaud (@iamalexismichaud) - a wanderlust model with a St. Tropez glow and a low-key, chill Ohio vibe. She prefers black, white, and red over colored images...a color scheme that I hardly work on (check my IG feed, it's a bunch of squares that make up a rainbow). Because of that comment she made, I was excited to creatively challenge myself and produce a B&W series to portray Alexis' bold character and features.
what I did:
- focused on selecting captures that revealed more feelz, and less posey (dramatic arching of the back, hair in your face, face planting [elegantly] into the ground)
- uniformity and consistency with B&W images is important to me, so I chose to add a simple filter with a hint of noise + sharpening
- kept the post-production to a minimum, adding that "imperfectly perfect" touch
- captivating Alexis' soul and allowing you to create a color pallete in your own mind
