Cliche | 52 Week Project | Week 51

Hi Everyone,

This week the theme for the 52 Week Project is cliché. Take any photography cliché and try to make it interesting.  Railroad tracks, heart shaped hands, and the one I picked, selective color.

You know the black and white photos with one color painted in so that the one color in the photo really stands out. A lot of those photos are painted eyes or scarves. I love Boo Radley’s eyes and having them stand out is really nice but instead of taking out the color of everything else in photoshop or over saturating his eyes I thought it would be better to try to use a backdrop and some texture in a color that matched Boo’s fur so that his eye would naturally stand out. No fake paint here. I think it gives the photo more depth and interest.

Have a great week!
