I Heart Faces: Black and White Drama



I followed my kids around all afternoon with my camera, just hoping to get something to use for this week's theme at i heart faces. The black and white part was easy... it was the other part of the theme that got me. Dramatic? Well, my children certainly can be dramatic. But I wasn't sure that Jaina dressing up like a fairy and performing a play was what they had in mind.

So, I picked this photo as my entry this week.

 It was one of those moments that I just happened to catch on camera. He was not posed nor really aware that I was taking his picture. My son was concentrating very hard on a particular subject. Being the avid Zelda lover that he is, Jayce was actually replaying the video game in his mind. Gotta love the tech geeks in my house :)

I liked this photo for the unusual expression, the lighting, the lines of the kitchen chair, and for the grain. I'm not sure why, but I love grain in black and white photos. Maybe because it reminds me of shooting with film.

There you have it! Go check out all the other entries at i heart faces :)

  5. The bars of the chair definitely "added" to the shot! You're right about grain in B&W photos... I love it, too. :)
