Weekend assignment August 25, 2006: Portraits

For this weekend’s assignment, I’d like to see your interpretation of a portrait. As I wrote yesterday, portraits can take many forms, but an essential ingredient is a recognizable person. Of course, if you’ve got a different point of view, I’d love to see an example. Hopefully you’ve got some willing subjects around. Even if you don’t, going outdoors and shooting candid portraits is a good way to practice. And you can always fall back on the self-portrait if that doesn’t work for you. As always, please share your results with the rest of us in the Photodoto discussion group. And have a great weekend!
