PORTRAITS: Weekend Photography Challenge



This weekend your photographic challenge is to take and share a portrait.

Early next week we’ll be launching our first ever e-book here at DPS – ‘The Essential Guide to Portrait Photography‘ and in anticipation of the launch and to get a little practice in – I thought it’d be fun to set the challenge to take a portrait over the weekend.

If you’ve not participated in our weekend challenges before – they’re pretty simple. You can see the last three weekends results in our Kitchens, Pets and Environment challenges.

The task is simple – take the best possible portrait that you can and come back to this post and share it..

Any kind of portrait is cool – it might be of a friend, child, partner or even yourself. All we ask is that you keep it family friendly and refrain from posting nudes (we have a password protected section in our forum for that).

PLEASE NOTE: We’re looking for ‘new‘ shots – this is a challenge rather than a look through your archives for a shot! This is about inspiring you to take more photos, not just showing off what you’ve already taken – we have a ‘share your shots‘ section in our forum for showing other shots you’ve taken so please do use that section for that purpose.

Once you’ve taken your photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSPORTRAIT to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

I can’t wait to see your portraits!
