Though it’s reasonable to think the word “selfie” was born from the advent of smart phones, the truth is Robert Cornelius produced a daguerreotype of himself in 1839. Wow, now there’s a visionary. His results were limited by the technology, but the same cannot be said for today’s modern devices. As Eve Arnold once noted, “It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument”. Her point of course is great technology in the hands of an amateur can often yield amateurish results. But it doesn’t have to.
Naturally I hope you choose Doug Remien Studios for your photo session, but as with any purchase it never hurts to comparison shop. For many people price is a primary concern, but it shouldn’t be the overriding one. If you’re using these images for your profession, then image is everything as they say, make sure they’re the very best.
In this digital age it’s easy to understand why people think converting a color image to black & white is a simple Photoshop task. And in truth it is simple, but if you want your image to be beautiful in black & white, advanced planning is required.
