More on Portraiture – Constructive Critique Episode 20

Constructive Critique May 16th 2013 4:41 PM 2 Comments

In this episode of Weekly CC, (Weekly Constructive Critique) we cover more portraiture! People photography is very popular among our forum readers and contributors, so it’s no surprise that we do get quite a few portraiture entries. Although there are typical rules when it comes to portraiture and composition, there are times when you want to break them.

    Thanks for the critique Pye! I just found it by chance. The shot really was made in seven seconds…lol… she was gone as soon as I pressed the shutter. I was holding her hand down on her lap to keep her still and shooting with the other. :-) Thanks again. Mike.
