I took this photo with higher hopes for it than how it actually turned out. I had wanted it to be much more symetrical, and to see more of a triangle with faces of my friends. However, I couldn't quite make that happen, so I can't say I'm overly pleased with how this photo came out. That said, with some editing, I think I still have managed to come up with something decent. I noticed, when I was taking this photo, that my favorite thing about it was my friend's socks. They're awesome! So I decided to bring that to the focal point, using color. The color, is centered around the bright pink stars, and the rest of the photo fades to black and white gradually. I think this is a really interesting effect that I am definately interested in experimenting with in the future. As part of my class's portrait unit, I've been looking at the works of Chase Jarvis, who does really interesting things with color and contrast. I hope to continue to use color to notable effect in my future portraits.
