Here, I will post all the portraits I can find and try to put them in some kind of chronological order but knowing my organizational skills I'm up a creek without a paddle. ha Critiquing appreciated! Just a little background on all these photos, they are all spur of the moment pictures. However, they are all used with the manual setting I can't stand auto, or autofocus because they never seem to get what you want. Plus its just more of a challenge not using it! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. They ended up being in no certain order, and I know they all look very amateur. And simply put, they are. I have never really had the chance to do real portrait work. Which leads me to a question not so much related to portraits but still related to photography. How do you get yourself known for photography? How can I find work, I'm doing a bunch of free stuff with friends to build up a portfolio but I want to be able to take it else where to, but I'm not sure how to start. Any advice?
