Artist's Description

The small ‘blankey’ Jimmy was resting on had some colour in it, Jimmy’s eyes have colour in them, and there’s some pink on his nose. But as soon as I looked at this shot the way I view most photography – by contrasts instead of hues – it jumped out at me in B&W. PhotoShop CS4 did a remarkable job of nabbing the light in so many different ways that I almost deleted the colour file completely.

Editing inspired by Karirose and her love of The Rule Of Thirds and directed by EBMonster mentoring: ‘Cut off the boring parts!! Chop until it looks like art!!’ In the end, James got to keep most of his face intact (even if off to a “third”) and I’m starting to like the subtle movement away from me shooting as if I’m doing photo documentation. Nobody needs to see the tip-tops of Jimmy’s ears hairs…~nobody except me and I already know what they look like~
