I have been working on kicking off my portrait business and have recently purchased a couple of Alien Bees with diffusers and was wondering if anyone else wanted to do a portrait SC?

No rules, portraits do not need to have been taking this month and natural light as well as studio lighting are welcome. Post as many as you would like as often as you want and comment on as many as you can. I would love to see a bunch of portraits, both in studio and on location with lighting descriptions. Let me know if you would be interested in kicking this off. I will add the users to this post that are interested.

I am in! I really would like to try and improve my portraits as well. I am already using this subject for the weekly 2011 images side challenge, so this side challenge will go along nicely with that.

I may sneak one in from time to time.

I'd be happy to join in. Portraits are my fav thing to shoot. It will be good to share lighting / make-up /camera setting info too!
01/25/2011 05:55:58 AM · #10
Portraits are few and far between for me..I would love the opportunity to share what I have taken...by the way, is there a limit to how many photos we can enter ?
Please consider me in, thanks !

I've never entered a challenge. This might be a safe place to start. No guts, no glory...I'll bite.
01/25/2011 07:10:23 AM · #12
Count me in.
01/25/2011 07:53:39 AM · #13
I'll try... This is certainly not my specialty by any means, but might be the kick in the knees I need to learn more :)

It always amazes me the amount of people that want me to take their picture/do portraits for them. I suck at portraits. I know nothing about lighting, it's all hit or miss. I have one flash that I stick on top the camera and bounce around till I get what I want. So, that said, put me in and I'll give it a try. Hopefully I'll learn something.
01/25/2011 08:04:47 AM · #15
Looking good so far. I updated the original post with the participants. Looking forward to learning with all of you.
01/25/2011 08:20:18 AM · #16
I'll chuck a few in if I may.
01/26/2011 06:58:17 AM · #17

please add me to the list
01/26/2011 09:30:07 AM · #19
I'm kinda scared of portraits, so I haven't taken any, really. It's new, but I'm in.
01/26/2011 11:16:22 AM · #20
Well, I'm trying to get a portrait business off the ground too, so I guess this might be a good chance to learn. Can I be in please?
01/26/2011 11:56:22 AM · #21
I would appreciate a shot. Thanks for setting things up.
01/26/2011 12:35:46 PM · #22
I would like to try it. I am in a class and hopefully will be able to produce some portraits.
01/30/2011 10:08:45 PM · #23
Almost that time
01/31/2011 12:06:31 AM · #24
I'll toss some in over the course of the month if you don't mind. I have some portrait work scheduled this month.

Sure thing. Always nice to see the work of photographers who actually draw their paycheck from photography.
