Let's get a thread going for some creative portraits done using in-camera techniques only, i.e., no effects done in post. I'll post a few of my own to start off with.
These were all edited exclusively in LR with no blurs or anything added. I've included links to some techniques here so you can go see how they're done.
This stuff isn't for everyone, but if it interests you, be absolutely sure to check out Sam Hurd's work. He spoke at a workshop I attended in April and is an absolute wizard with his camera (AND he's a super nice guy).

I'm still learning but it's a lot of fun to try new things and get really creative.
