THE STORY:

I was interning the 16-year-old Catherine who was dreaming of being an artist-photographer. During that season Bill entered my life and on one of his many visits, he met Catherine.

Bingo!! I thought what a model for studying lighting and a project was birthed for Catherine to learn more about lighting and gain some confidence with camera and communication skills.

Uncle Bill complied over a couple of cups of coffee, a few biscuits, and some Beethoven.

With my direction, she photographed Bill in color. A year later I was looking at this image and realized that something in Bills’ expression needed to be brought out into the public eye.

The image was converted to Black and White and the white backdrop had to edited out. I created a more rugged effect by enhancing the freckles and contrast in his skin. With this approach, I wanted to tell his story of the long eventful life he had navigated up to our friendship.

It is pleasing to see this has been awarded and all 3 of us can claim credit for a job well done.

What do you think?
