    December 2011 Foo Photo Contest - here are the winners!

    Theme for December is Portrait, chosen by Macfred.

    A portrait is a photograph of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

    Rules:
    Theme: Portrait
    - You must be the photographer
    - One photo per person
    - Try to make the photo a recent one

    Good luck everyone!

    (back story: This is my youngest brother. His twin decided to call all the other siblings and a few friends, and invites us all to meet for a long weekend at my youngest brother's house....and THEN tells him when we'll all be there! This shot was taken after 6 of us arrived, and we asked him how he REALLY felt about seeing us! - we came to his house in VA from NY, WV, FL, CA, GA & VT)

    Did you go to a studio to use their backgrounds, or do you have that at home?

    And what are you using for a camera?

    I am not going to go into a lot of detail about the photo, since it is a "contest". Will answer in more detail in Jan.

    Unfortunately, my home does not have room for a studio, so I have a portable studio. Camera was a Nikon D90 with Tamron 17-50 f2.8. Off-camera lighting (speedlights/umbrellas) with radio triggers.

    this is not for the contest because its a few years old, but it's one of the best portraits I've ever taken. If it were recent I'd make it my submission.

    Very interesting bokeh (the out of focus area for those that need to know), was it shot with a DC lens or something like a lensbaby?

    I hate to give away my secrets. That would be one way to do it.

    sorry just kidding. select the subject, then invert the selection, then apply guassian blur to whatever degree you like. can really pop the subject from the background in a cool way.

    I'm such an old skool guy I always thinks about doing it through the lens. I first thought slow shutter and a wind but her hair didn't agree...
