I belong to a wonderful forum for photographers called Clickin Moms. This year I have decided to participate in a blog circle with some other lovely and talented ladies. Each month we have a topic and shoot with that topic in mind. It just so happens that I have decided to make my blog circle entries part of my very first Project 52. The topic for the month of January was Closeup Portraiture. I love closeup portraits. I want to see the person and be able to memorize their features. The following photos were taken each week of January. When you are done hop on over to Time Framed Photography to see her amazing shots!
First up we have my very handsome husband. With this picture I decided to try garage light for the first time. I thought our garage was too dark for me to get a decent picture but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. This closeup shot reveals the little bit of red that is in his mustache and goatee. He insists that this red hair does not exist.
The next two shots were experiments. Apparently this month was a month of trying new things! Freelensing. I hadn’t heard of it until a few weeks ago but it sounded intriguing. The shots below were taken with my 50mm 1.4D and held unattached away from the camera. This is an excellent way to get your subjects up close and personal.
The forecast was calling for snow so I decided to rent the 105mm micro lens. This little baby was a dream! I was able to get an extreme closeup of my daughter’s amazing eyelashes. This lens is definitely on my list.
Last but not least we have this closeup of my son. He turns 10-years-old today! A decade! I wanted this closeup shot to remember the details of his face on this monumental birthday. His amazing eyes, braces on the teeth, and even a pimple on his chin hinting at what is to come.
