Can often be a very hard thing for someone to do. We become so used to being behind the lens its a challenge to be in front and behind at the same time. I'd be the first to be to run out of sight when a camera is pointed at me, never liked getting my photo taken.

Got a bit bored/brave this evening and decided to just go for it.

All C&C welcome and I want to see other peoples portraits ! And I mean portraits, If I want to see what people look like I can look in the off-topic forum !!

what exactly is a portrait then? :?

interesting picture though!
 
Portrait, from the dictionary:

1. A likeness of a person, especially one showing the face, that is created by a painter or photographer, for example.
2. A verbal picture or description, especially of a person.
 
I've been thinking of doing one recently. Will have to wait till my new battery comes though. Nikon recalled mine cause they can catch fire when charging apparently :O
 
Darkness seems to be a nice theme for these :D

Here's my attempt. It's a bit edgy around the ear.. my lighting was a bit too harsh :( Had one light behind me pointing at my head.. Brought out the shirt in photoshop, the original picture only showed the white halo which was my head :p
