One Frame: Sadness or Joy

The one frame series is a new work in progress, which seeks to illustrate how the viewers perspective of a single image can be skewed depending on the photographers processing method. Processing is a crucial step in the story telling process and affects not only visual perspectives but also influences the visceral response of the audience.  In this case, the black and white image is the transference of my own internal struggles with gloomy, muddy, and dark feelings onto the image itself. The color image, however; leaves the darkness behind. It reflects the joy and warmth he brings to my soul, by utilizing the warm tonality provided by the almost direct light from the setting sun. The image is softer, with shadows being less defined thereby decreasing their significance in the overall aesthetic of the image.
