Hi all, this is a thread to post portraits of a significant person in your life. It could be your parents, siblings, spouse, girl/boyfriend, friend, etc.

Lets show the human and loving side of photography!

I'll start it off with a picture of my girlfriend; shot with GF1 and 20 f1.7 lens

Nice shot. I like very much the GF1 + 20mm 1,7 for portraits.
Here's my girlfriend

Lovely potraits, Blair and Raoul. Here are a couple casual portraits of family from over the recent holiday using the GH1, ISO 800, Lumix 20, bounce flash. In retrospect, I ought to have used a more shallow DOF instead of shooting at f/4.

Here is a portrait of my wife that was used in a magazine write up for her shop.

I took it in the shop using the GF1+20mm lens and the in camera flash at f1.7.

The 20mm was great for this, fast to focus, pin sharp where it needed to be and with a great bokeh.

I find this combination great as a carry always portrait kit ( I am trying the Summicron 50mm lens on the GF1 for some longer lens portraits and will post images soon).

This is an image of took of my wife using the adaptor, Summicron 50mm at f2, flash and a touch of ambient light.

I have used some blur on the image to soften it a tad.

Love the 20mm shots!

Q: Does the 20mm require getting REALLY close for a headshot? I am coming from a D90 and use 100mm or longer for portrait work.

Wanting to start inhome portrait studio? I'm wanting to create some type of inhome portrait studio but am not sure what equip to buy. I'd like to be able to take portraits of my kids using different colored backdrops and props. (like how Sears or Jcpenney does) I have a Canon Rebel XTI digital camera. Canon external flash and 300 zoom lens. Photoshop program on my computer and nice photo printer. What else do I need to purchase? Any other tips or advice?
