Portrait contest at DIYP

This certainly isn’t new news, but DIYPhotography.net is giving away 3 copies of Portrait Professional 8 (more info here).

Being a sucker for free stuff (especially photography related), I entered 2 pictures. One for the B&W portrait and one for the color portrait.

The B&W:


This is my oldest daughter. I was trying out a lighting mod I had made out of PVC pipe and a shower curtain. She was moving around and moved mostly out of the light. A happy accident.

I’m actually a bit disappointed at how the deep shadows on camera right turned out in the conversion for flickr. There is detail in there, but it seems to have been mashed a bit. While I’m a bit disappointed, I don’t want to spend anymore time on this picture. While I like it, my wife isn’t fond, and so it’s future lies in eating up hard drive space. Never shall it see ink printed onto paper.

The color:


My middle daughter. I will rightly admit that this is one of those pictures that I’m biased towards. Other people probably won’t have the same reaction but then again I’m emotionally attached. Love it. Of course, I also know how difficult it was to get this shot too. Another reason I’m biased towards it.

That’s it.
