Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

Personal Portraits
There may be portraits on your wall or work desk taken by a professional in a studio, with perfect exposure, lighting, and pose--that's what pros do. But there may also be other shots of family and friends that you have made--whether you're a pro or not--that somehow aim right at the mark of who that person is or people are, and how you feel about them. They can be candids or setups, made with strobe or under natural light. The only criteria we look for is that they are personal and from the heart. Please do note that we need model releases for ALL shots for this assignment. Failure to provide same will result in our not being able to pick the shot for publication.
