So a couple of Instagram accounts joined together to collaborate and host a portrait competition. I never really do portraits, but I thought I would give it a shot. I asked my friend if she would like to model for a couple hours and she happily agreed. Thanks Linley @linleysullinsfit
We went out on Saturday morning to a chilling 25 degrees and I shot around 400 photos. Not all of them were portraits, actually only a good 10 or so were. I entered the best one and posted it to Instagram, tagged it with the contest hashtag and mentioned all the accounts. Well, I didn't end up placing, but I'm very proud of the outcome of the photo. I have to say it's probably the best portrait shot I've ever taken. I've never even really taken them this way. They've been you're traditional type of photos, but this one was fun and challenging. Let me know what you think. It's the first image below.
