Love the use of distortion in that picture Devvy, good colours too!

It is super hard to get there when you can take pictures of people, both to spot a scene or risk being people reacting negatively.


My two pictures are from a walk in the seedier side of Copenhagen, the Redlight district, and taken at the only holy place there - right outside a church. Spotted this man sitting there, loved his face - so interesting, such strong blue eyes and I asked for permission.

Next challenge, and this one runs to the 1th of February!

The portrait shoot!

So, basically, anything that means you direct somebody, or deliberately takes a picture to capture the person or animals "essence/personality".

- Tips:
Think about the light, and how it can be used to focus attention on a person.
Blurring of the background, also helps in directing attention.
Focus on the eyes, makes everything feel like it is in focus.
Avoid lines/items that seem to be growing out of a persons head.
