Zonder titel. by Anoya Zonder titel. by Anoya
This is one of my first attempts on portrait photography. I've never been into it really, but my grandfathers girlfriend was having a birthday party and there were lots of people, lots of kids especially and I just couldn't help myself. I had to take pictures.

These are Iris and Rita. One of my grandfathers girlfriends' grandkids and the sister of my grandfathers girlfriend.

Taken with a Canon 400D, Tokina 100mm f/2.8 macro, no tripod. No work done, just levels, curves and black and white.

Nice camera!. I've tryed one before :) now i'm searching for a canon EOS 550D and Conon EF- 28 - 135 lens.


About the photo... It's just amazing how you can show human feelings in your artwork.

Great one! I'm happy my friend told me about you.

Definitely a nice camera, enjoying it for sure =) I haven't tried the 28 - 135mm, did you find it yet?

Aww, thank you so much! I appreciate it, I haven't done a lot of portraits and never thought I was any good at it haha. So, thank you!

Thank your friend for me as well! :giggle:

I love this photograph. The tones are perfect, and it houses many concepts that play on the viewers emotions. Great job, especially for one of your first attempts at portrait photography.

Dank je wel! Ik wist echt niet of ik hem in kleur moest laten, of zwart wit zou maken. Maar ik vond zwart wit wel bij haar expressie passen inderdaad! :aww:

I think you should try to take even more portraits! These are really good ones! Well done! Both looks natural and the b&w works very well in this one! :)
