Appetizers Are Served 1950's Style Black and White
This image was shot with a dreamy lighting effect. If you want, you can pick up this effect as part of my Lightroom Presets here. I like the color version because it makes all the characters pop. Diagnosing the scene, the entire setting (the table, chairs, wall, curtain) are some tone of white or black, leaving the actual subjects in the scene (the lady, the food, and the photograph) to stand out as the only objects in color. That works brilliantly. However, I also like it in a traditional Black and White as it highlights the compositional simplicity of the shot as well as lending a nostalgic 1950’s housewife feel to it.
