This week's topic is “Make a head shot”. This is probably part of a huge part of youre pictures. If you have a person there, you also have a head shot. But this is probably the area we all can gain the most if we can improve it. Great pictures of peoples head, makes you popular. For a great inspirational input, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com …hn8C1HqCI&featu​re=related (external link)

To get a nice white background head shot you can do this. Go out find a great big window without direct sunlight, get someone to stand next to the window, put a big construction light to shine the background (overexpose it)... shoot. Or use a tripod and shoot youreself.

That would give you something like this:

Ugh. I missed this week's, unfortunately. Great idea Kent. Challenging folks to do a photographer's "classic" job.

I guess it is time to vote now.

My vote goes to Ajaxthe2nd - I love the contrast in expressions between the boy & the cat.

Sorry i didn't get one in this week guys, i spent 4 days working on my car and when i had some time i couldn't get a willing subject. I am about to head off for a 5 day fishing trip in the mountains but should be able to pick up the internet were i am going so will check on the next theme and hopefully get one in.

This week it was a toss up between joey p and ajaxthe2nd but those eyes just kept pulling me in so my vote goes to joey p.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
