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 Mike Rowland for this lovely cropped in composition. This really does give a nice feeling to the shot. A well-deserved people vote!
My vote goes to Nicola Butler for this fun shot at some kind of event she was at! It’s not every day you see people like this and it’s great to capture this when you can. Great response to the theme.
Thanks to all that entered, a great effort.
