Sustainable Prospects – Contact Sheets
After each shoot, I produce a contact sheet of the possible images that will be selected for the project. 3 examples are shown below. I have only included these one due to the options chosen by participants on the image release form – not everyone wanted all their images made public as they are very vulnerable and exposed in these images.
In each case, careful consideration is given to the image selection. In order for the project to have the maximum impact, the emotions expressed must be genuine and not forced. I also choose the image I think is most powerful. The image is sent to the participant before it is finally chosen for the project.
