Dogwood52: week 7: Portrait: Faceless

Tell someone’s story without showing their face.

I did find it extremely hard to be inspired, to capture an interesting context. I didn’t put too much effort into this and mainly worked on the future challenges instead; but here’s the result:

Kids playing, normal stuff Feet portrait Texting Couch potato

Respectively named:

  • Kids playing, normal stuff,
  • Feet portrait,
  • Texting, and
  • Couch potato.

But be prepared for something more amazing for week 8 😉

Dogwood52: Week 4: Portrait: headshot

This one was really difficult for me. It’s hard to find out what expression and posture to ask to people, therefore I have decided to publish a picture of Sheepie, my travel companion from New Zealand. I am so bad at have a lot of potential in portrait photography 😉

Dogwood52: Portait: Self Portrait

The description was:

Start things off right with a “selfie”! Explore the self timer setting on your camera

Oh no! I hate shooting myself, that’s why I always stay behind the camera, but let me try anyway… Add to that the humid grass and the damp air. I used my remote shutter to shoot the pictures. My original plan was to lie of the grass and shoot myself in different position, but from the second I was set in position, I did feel the humidity going through my clothes. As soon as I got in front of the lens, I couldn’t have any natural smile anymore, and it got worse over the shots.

Since I love outdoors, I thought going somewhere green and wearing something green would be appropriate. I tried different poses, holding still or being active; then I didn’t qualify jumping as a portait photo, but it was a good exercice.

My favorite photo:
But I did not qualify it as a portrait.
