I think this topic has had me the most stumped of all so far. "Portrait" has such a formal ring to it and falls out of the scope of "point and shoot" or spur of the moment photography. A portrait is something that is composed and planned. It should show the essence of the person being photographed. It is generally a serious thing - something that I am not on most occasions.
So, it's 2:30 in the morning on "portrait" day and I've just gotten Her Royal Cuteness in from her prom. She looked amazing , but will not let me post her image. I sit here and I have nothing that I like to post for this theme although I have taken lots of pictures. I just deleted an entire post that I wasn't happy about. Then I took my own picture.
Therefore, I give you "Portrait of a Frustrated Blogger."
MikeWJ will call this desperation...yup...that just about sums it up just fine.
Please visit these fine portrait artists to see their masterpieces.
