Are You Ready For Your Close Up?

Something I’d like to do at some point is portrait work. Not done very much of this type of photography. So, if anyone fancies being a willing victim for me, give me a shout. In the meantime, here’s the closest I’ve got to portraiture with all of these pictures taken on the prime 50mm lensContinue reading “Are You Ready For Your Close Up?”
