Meeting Máire
13-FEB-2010

Meeting Máire

Went to Dublin today to meet fellow Irish Pbaser Máire. As the weather has turned cold again
we spent an enjoyable couple of hours practising our portraiture skills. I had never given
much thought to portraiture before other than pointing a camera at someone and telling
them to say 'cheese' so I've realised that I have a lot to learn. Or maybe I should just
stick to shooting cats and birds.

Nikon D90
1/15s f/11.0 at 90.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

A beautiful portrait. Very nice work! You are far too modest about your skills as a portrait photographer. More, please! ~V~

Portraiture isn't easy, especially when you really analyze it. I usually just shoot for what I like to see even though my lighting or angles don't fit the rules. Don't just stick to cats and birds - shoot whatever you feel from the heart!~

A very nice, soft portrait here! You've done well!

The most difficult subject of all and you did a wonderful job. Máire should be very pleased with this.

Someone told me you should say "Thursday" instead...! Not sure if that works!

You seem to be doing pretty well - great shot of Máire :o)

Wonderful Máire! When I ask someone for a portrait, I often take one, possibly two more after they think I've finished and sometimes they can be the best!

This is a beautiful portrait of a beautiful lady - you have certainly branched out from cats and birds!
