Photo(s) of the Week – Mandy Paul

Stop Shack

I’m breaking with tradition and selecting two photos for the photo of the week only because I had a draw and discovered that both were from the same photographer – Mandy Paul. Both shots were taken with a Canon 50D, with the one at the bottom of the page being a from Mandy’s 50D after it was converted to an infrared camera.

I’ve separated the two shots as they have drastically different tones so they clash when viewed side by side, but independently they both look pretty neat.

I liked the top image for quite some time as it’s been the runner up for the photo of the week at least 5 times. There’s nothing super special about the composition other than the reality that you feel like you’re a in a blast from the past at a farming town. The photo was taken in 2010 and processed in a way that gives it some fun character but also keeps a little color that really appeals to me. I really enjoy the processing of this photo a lot.

The photo on the bottom image exhibits stark blacks and whites due to the infrared effect which I think works very well for this image. It’s one that I think would make a great print too!

Congrats to Mandy on these two fun images where you had the courage to experiment!
