People in Places

People in Places in a theme set to get students practicing with Portraits. Portraiture is one of the hardest disciplines in Photography. To take a good portrait you need two things, confidence and creativity. The confidence to engage with and direct your model is the first thing, then it’s how are you going to make it different from the norm. On top of that you’ll need to control your technical aspects of photography such as depth of field and a fast shutter speed to avoid camera shake.

The winning images from our gallery of entries are…..

The people’s vote goes to Amanda Froggitt for this lovely shot of her parents. This really has a nice feeling to the shot and shows how taking portraits of people you know is a really good place to start. A well-deserved people vote!

My vote goes to Rita Kelly for this shot of a man at work! It’s great to capture people in this candid way and again, makes great practice for the learning photographer. Great response to the theme.
