OLUSEGUN OBASANJO : GOLDEN
About 13 years ago I asked an assistant to help me source a gold velvet fabric for backdrop for my portraits .It was meant to be large and in the tone of gold …rich.. like the highlight on a very dark persons skin…He didn’t nearly find what I wanted.
He however came back with a small sized unimpressed ash colored fabric that looked really old.. I was disappointed .
It didn’t occur to me that he just handed me gold .. real gold.. that boring piece of fabric became my favorite backdrop . I went on to photograph 3 Nigerian presidents against it. It was also the best shade for post production . It was light enough to compliment most skin tones ., yet dark enough to be augmented in post production.
In this portrait my ash colored backdrop was brushed to a rich gold to compliment Baba’s aso oke.
Sometimes we don’t find exactly what we are looking for. .. but we must learn to appreciate what we have been handed … it may just be golden
