OK Guys here we are again with a spiffing new challenge for August

The Humble Portrait

That doesn't mean your portrait has to show our ladies being humble just that the portrait shot is such a classic.

Portrait photography or portraiture in photography is a photograph of a person or group of people that captures the personality of the subject by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses.
A portrait picture might be artistic, or it might be clinical, as part of a medical study. Frequently, portraits are commissioned for special occasions, such as weddings or school events.
I'm very fond of certain shots which for example show one of our ladies looking out of the window or just looking thoughtful. I also love the ones which show off amazing techniques in makeup or just lighting effects. If you do a search on portraits it will reveal the many different guises of a shot which fall into the portrait category so this challenge is by no means restrictive.

This month's Category A rules are:
1. A new or recent photo shot by yourself, not taken before July 2017, and not posted on TDF before.
2. Members may enter one photo into each category, but it cannot be the same photo.
3. Your entry into any category may contain any mixture of one or more dolls.
4. Doll nudity is not acceptable. Think about what you would be prepared to show to your granny. Get those beautiful clothes on.
5. Photoshop or other image editing is restricted. Sorry guys but I'm looking for an 'As Shot' photograph and as such Photoshop or other software should not be the basis of the composition. Use of software is perfectly acceptable for removal of stands , props, etc and for cropping and conversion of an image along with some temperature modifications. (Any questions PM me) Please see the clarification notice. viewtopic.php?p=1149135#p1149135
6. Do not break any TDF rules regarding photos, and also comply to The Doll Album AUP (Acceptable Use Policy). If you choose to use erotic props, be especially mindful of this rule.
7. Please supply the name of your doll(s) in your photo, you may give it a title but not mandatory.

And remember: All kinds of dolls are able to participate in all categories!


This month's challenge will run until approx. 12 midnight GMT (end of the day) Sunday August 27 2017, with the next three days open for voting.
The top three winners (including any ties) will be announced on Thursday August 31 2017. When there are ties, there are more winners!


Lastly, Have fun out there, there are tons of possibilities in this theme

Now this is the kind of picture that speaks to the skill of the photographer. A Portrait is the "Bread & Butter" of every photographer. I look Forward to this challenge with great enthusiasm.

Yeah it's good practice for everyone to have a go at portraiture. It is as you say bread and butter for most photographers. I look forward to your entry.

Dolls as subjects are so wonderful in being patient with lighting and all sorts of things, and very instructing photographically as a result.

Best wishes

Harem

Harem old bean, are these your entries?
If so there are two, plus one of them is a nude and therefore doesn't qualify. Rules and all that.
Lovely shots nonetheless and the non-nude one would be perfectly acceptable.

Harem! Dude! You got nudity in your pic. Expressly forbidden by this month's rules. You'll have to use the second one. And isn't it old? One of us pervs is going to have to win one of these if we ever want to see nudity again. :drinking:
