This year I will be participating in a monthly blog circle with some lovely ladies over at Clickin Moms. Each month will consist of a specific challenge that we have all month to complete. For our first month our challenge was “Closeup Portraiture”. I found this challenge to be extremely fun as I have a love of closeup portraiture already. I used this challenge to play with a couple different light situations and I even got a self portrait in there! I’ve found my favorite types of close ups are when my subject is not even looking, I just love focusing on the details. I have a few newborn sessions coming up and I can’t wait to get some closeups of all their little squishy parts.
And now for my images:
Now go take a look at Nina’s lovely closeup portraiture. You can find her blog post here.
