portraiture

Im a professional portrait photographer who's work is among the permeant archive collection of the National Portrait Gallery. I am currently working on a book documenting 100 living centenarians who have witnessed the entire 20th century. If anyone would like to talk about documenting people or portraiture in general then please feel free to get in touch.

Jayson.

Re: portraiture

If you go into the members gallery you will find on the LHS of the menu bar three options. One of them is 'My Albums' If you click on that link you should be able to create a new album in the next page.

You do not have to upload into an album, you can upload into any of the galleries directly if you want. The links are on the RHS of the menu bar.

This guide might be useful.

Get back to us if you need to.

Re: portraiture

You think of everything

Max file size is 300kb and longest side is 1000 pixels. Most members use 800 pixels though, and I tend to use 550 for portrait orientation.

Here are our site rules and guides. When you've got a moment there is some more info there.

Re: portraiture

I purchased the new flag head ring flash adapter for the Canon 580EX recently (also available for Nikon), and it works great with portraiture. It is a very soft light source with no harsh shadows that usually appear with on-camera-flash which raps light around the subject - highly recommended!
