    Pretty stoked to have hit the 2000 mark. I joined the forum back in Jan 2010 and I'm glad to have picked up tips and ideas and the best part is that my pictures do look better than what they were when I first started. I sometimes go back through my old pictures and my nose crinkles up at some of them. Aww and I've even picked up friends along the way, what a nice bonus. Good onya Amin for making this place!

    I know some of you like my portraits so here you go. Couple of new ones.

    Very nice. Especially like the second shot.

    The second model needs to get her hands off her hips, but your side of the camera was done very well.

    Portraits with a touch of attitude - very nice Brady - you obviously have a good relationship with your subjects.

    I know exactly what you mean :biggrin:

    Nice portraits Brady. I like the flare & backlighting in #1 and the different perspective in #3, gives it a little something different than the straight-ahead look.

    Congratulations on 2000 posts

    Congratulations Brady, on your 2000th post. Your work is always interesting to look at, and you're a great ambassador for your family, state and country. Keep up the good work. My feelings on the portraits are that the subjects need to become as laid back as the photographer!
    Cheers

    Man you just made my day. Thanks:smile:

    I'm really blessed that my friends don't mind me taking pictures of them. By having a sense of humour and a camera it can be so much fun. These a memories I don't take for granted.

    Thankyou for your welcome encouragement. Here's a few sisters,

    Jessica O75mm (I love how it looks like I've used a flash on her but it's just natural light. I'm not sure if this is the camera or lens)

    Christina (O75mm again)

    Please don't shoot... (O45mm)
