Every once in awhile, I take a photo and I know instantly it would look great in black and white. Without the distraction of color, the viewer can focus on the emotion in a picture. The drama. The story.
This photo of my cat Elsa Clair waiting at the bottom of the stairs is a perfect example. (And yes, just then, I resisted the op-purr-tunity to use a purr-fectly good pun. The first time.)
It’s not the friendliest of looks Elsa Clair has there. More than likely she was waiting for her dinner and I had the audacity to be upstairs instead of in the kitchen preparing her food. She was impatient. Indignant. Downright irate.
When I cropped the photo and used the black and white filter, the tension in the picture became more pronounced.
An image of a movie poster came to mind instantly.
And I had to. I just had to.
Coming soon to a theatre near you…
