No Librodo, no tricks, just show us a portrait that really kicks!

Minimum Editing - No description.

Hm, this could be pretty interesting.

The only portraits that looks good without any editing are children. ;D

I totally suck at portraits (not much better at other types of photography too). I have no proper lighting (not even on-board flash) and I now only have a 50mm prime lens. This is a challenge that could teach me a lot. I say lets do it.

Just one question. Should this be portraits of people only or could animals count too?

No description. :)

Portraits are portraits, human, duck or feeling.

Take a portrait of pain for all that I care - just make sure that I think "portrait" when I see it.

Of course, the best images are almost certainly going to be human portraits IMO.

Well, that'd work pretty good if I was the only voter.

Not sure why you think it's appropriate to attack me on this, but it's not like I give a damn bro - it's pretty much my prerogative to define this however I'd like, given it's my suggestion. Don't you think? ;)

Or was that just a poorly worded objection to the inclusion of non-human portraits? After all, you really are extremely good at human portraits, so I might expect that you'd prefer those instead.

Cory I think there was an inferred smiley face at the end of that.

no thanks.

minimal editing and portraits do not go together.

You very well may be right - hence the inclusion of a ;) in my post.

Never can tell though - some people are so funny about minimal editing and portraits.

In any case, I tend to meet fire with fire, I just try not to actually burn anything until I'm sure of what I'm burning, and why. ;D

Or maybe a smiley. Yeah, that could probably work. ;)

Ok, why?

Let me point out a few portraits in my favorites that I think could easily be done in minimal:

'

And finally a nod to my bro Smardaz:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1654/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1039946.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1654/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1039946.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

All of these could be done in minimal editing - sure, you're gonna have to think about it before you shoot, and do some work to get it right - but I think that if people really gave it an honest shot, we'd see some amazing stuff.

ROFL - Well, I'll remember to try not to break out the torches with you so quickly in the future. Sorry about singeing your mustache. ;)

Seriously though - I suppose a disclaimer might be appropriate for you. You'll notice I have one on my profile, and if you had read it, you might have known that I was intending that in a reasonably good-natured fashion, even if my torch was lit. ;)

i think it's a great idea cory

This would probably be a good exercise for me. I'd give this one a shot.
03/04/2013 06:29:08 PM · #22
Another example, from my own portfolio.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1648/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1037611.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1648/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1037611.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This was basic editing - which equates to "Could have happened in camera with the right settings".

Now, I do think this would have been much harder in minimal, but I think I could do it. (this time without the facial burns I hope)

Did you have an extra dose of negativity this morning with breakfast Mike?

It's a bummer you think that nothing of value can be created without massive post-production editing.

ETA: I really am surprised that you didn't think even ONE of those photos I posted were of sufficient quality to be impressive to you.

Oh I see the problem. You just don't like much of anything! ;)
