The goal of portrait photography is to capture the likeness of a person or a small group of people, typically in a flattering manner. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of photograph is the person's face, although the entire body and the background may be included.
Oh and before i forget i've managed to get back on to Flickr so if you want to see more of my work then follow the link at the side.
.(The photo on the table in the image is of my Mum, Dad & me of course. Mum & Dad have passed away now but the memory of them still lives on in my heart).
Also trying my hand at a Lemonade experiment. Saw someone else do this and it looked great. Think I need a bit more practice. It's not as easy as it looks. Wish they would tell me their secret but you know how some people hate sharing their knowledge ........ Only kidding I know this person would share if I asked.
Took this photo at work this morning with a little digital camera borrowed off a colleague. Couldn't resist. The sky was ablaze in reds and oranges.
Well here's another studio shot, this time of a bamboo stem. Looks like there'll be a few studio shots until the weather gets a little better. I hate winter and the damp miserable days we get, but rain provides the water we drink so I shouldn't complain.
Just had to add this tonight. At work today it started to snow but it never lay on the ground as it was too wet. Later that day my boss let me go home 1/2 hour early as he'd heard that where I live the roads were bad with snow yet there was nothing at Gateshead where I work. Well off i went home and here's what I saw. You wouldn't believe that we were only 12 mile away. Where I live is pretty high up and we always get the worst of the weather.
Commonly known as Daffodil narcissus, jonquil have six outer petals surrounding a cup which creates a trumpet-like look. Some stems produce one flower; others produce clusters. The outer petals are yellow or white; cups may be white, yellow, orange or salmon, and some have an orange edge.
Another attempt at 'still life' work. I still haven't bought those lamps yet so the lighting's not quite right yet. But I won't give up as it's the only way to learn..... try, try try again....
Another little bonus image to make up for the days I lost posting this year. Hope you like it.
I'm in the middle of setting up a little studio in my spare room to photograph smaller still life stuff. All i need now are a couple of lamps for lighting. This was taken with the light from the room.
See you all tomorrow.
