    Show your "Blending Portrait"

    Not an original idea of mine, but I came across this somewhere online and tried it... A nice piece of texture ( treebark ) combined with a tough face and then trying to make a nice blend of both... I'm happy with the result ! Please add your work !

    Hello, a friend of mine asked me (wellore like volunteered me at emotional gun point) to photograph her wedding, it's not going to be a big event, just a main family and a couple of friends at the legal office and at home before that.

    Winter Fungus Portraits

    A few days ago my son went for a walk in a local county park. He came back with several phone shots of mushrooms. It has been a warm winter so far, so the fungi have been taking advantage and coming out all over. It took me a few days, but I finally had some time to go out to the park...

    Cousin Valentine Shoot

    We spent some time at our local park with a cousin and her mom. The stuffed dog was not supposed to be part of the shoot but the little one would not let it go so we went with it. I am not a Pro Portrait shooter so be gentle.

    Using a neutral gray backdrop with blending modes for portraits

    I intend to make a series of portraits of my parents generation, aunts and uncles. So I wanted a portable consistent backdrop. I really like the Annie Leibovitz using a custom Oliphant backdrop style look. The backdrops while absolutely stunning are pricey. Maybe one day. So I use a Wescott...

    35mm(50) vs 50(75) for portraits

    So, this isn’t another typical which focal length is better for portrait work. That discussion has been beaten to death, resurrected, and beaten to death.

    My oldest has been developing her "eye." Three shots that show how how she evolved this shot. All with my RX100M3 at RI Comic Con. And yes, for the record, the person holding the Death Star plans usually doesn't survive the end of the film. 😁

    First run using the V Flat

    First round of shooting using the Monolith as it is now known. Thanks to my friend Andy for pointing out that similarity. I know there were some people on here who had no idea what this thing was, let alone how it would be used. I love that I can be set up and shooting with this thing in 5-10...
