We are having a DPC GTG this weekend. And there has been talk about messing around with strobes when the sun goes down. So this challenge was dropped on us at exactly the right time.

You could think outside the box and take a picture of a Male/Female Dog or cat...

LOL, depends on how you look at it. You could look at it with a DPC mind or a normal mind.

Just be sure to show the face of whatever you shoot - not just a boob ;)

no explaination.... is this portraits of or by Males or Females?
05/21/2008 10:59:39 AM · #12
I had the same question in mind ... is it necessary to take the photo of a human being ... as MALE/FEMALE can be for loads of species and not necessarily humans only ... please someone let me know ...

The challenge specs do not state that it must be human.

The voters on the other hand . . .

i think this is going to be awesome. i just cant quite figure out if a photo i took on the 20th would count since i am in a different time zone. i took my photos the day the challenge opened, so would it count? technically?

Only if it was taken after the beginning of the challenge - by the time on the server (not your local time)

Are portraits, by definition, posed?

Can they be candid? environmental? Show emotion? Must it be a headshot?

How do you define "portrait"?

Dudes are just nothing to look at. I just don't know who is going to look at the dude challenge. Even the girls are going to look at the chick challenge and ignore the dude challenge.

But this is good... less competition in the dudes.

I just noticed this thread is "fe / male portrait".

Is that an hint that we are supposed to get a picture of Iron Man? :)
