A few of my recent Portrait Photography Shots

I thought I would share with you today some recent portrait shots of mine, I’m still learning the hard way and enjoying the learning process. All of my shoots have solely consisted of natural light up to now, but I have recently acquired a flash (Nikon SB700) though so I am looking forward to taking control of my lighting!

Let me know what you think, all comments are welcome…


Michelangelo di Battista: Beyonce Knowles in InStyle Magazine

This is a recent photo shoot of worldwide famous R&B/Pop Singer Beyonce Knowles by fashion photographer Michelangelo di Battista for InStyle magazine, I have made quite a few features regarding di Battista now on the blog. He is quickly becoming one of my favourite photographers in the industry, his work fills me with inspiration.

His photography is atmospheric, deep in colour and mood whilst representing his subjects/models in a very natural and relaxed fashion. His skill in perfecting dramatic lighting set ups is equally effective!

Michelangelo di Battista: Gwen Stefani.. Stunning portrait

I came across this incredible shot today by fashion/portrait photographer Michelangelo di Battista, this is from his shoot of famed singer Gwen Stefani. This shot is so incredible in every aspect, the sense of drama and atmosphere is intense creating great impact. This is without even mentioning, the stunning composition and lighting of this photograph.

The bokeh to the right of the image is smooth and beautiful allowing the sharpness of the left side of the image to stand out just that bit more.

Dr Cullen: A Creative Photographer

I have recently seen a lot of work on Flickr by a highly talented photographer who goes by the name of Dr Cullen, his work is highly inspiring as he appears to make incredible images from ‘simple’ subjects.

As we all know, it is quite a talent to spot beauty in everyday life but it takes something slightly more to create beauty from very little. As you may agree, Cullen manages to create striking photography from simple everyday subjects. I really am fascinated with the simplicity of his work and am now considering the various objects around my house as potential artistic masterpieces! Well I wouldn’t go that far…

Philipp Klinger is one of the most viewed photographers on Flickr, I thought the time had come to add one of his most viewed photographs to the blog. This photo ‘New York- Brooklyn bridge sunset’ has gained a quite incredible 260,000 views and has amassed over 1000 comments, it is clear to see why as it is a staggering capture. This photo really highlights the brilliance of good ole’ New York city!

Sauri is a photographer I have featured on the blog before, I saw an image of his recently on Flickr which in my opinion is one of his best yet. I find it inspiring to see a photographer go from strength to strength in their work. See the stunning composition below,it is a strong photograph in so many ways.

Michael Angelo di Battista: Alicia Keys for Vogue Italy

I stumbled across this incredible photoshoot by fashion photographer Michael Angelo di Battista today for Vogue magazine Italy, the model is US R&B singer Alicia Keys. The setting/location is extremely powerful, the lighting is dramatic and there appears to be a strong representation of the personality of Alicia Keys as a recording artist. The photos speak for themselves..

Mario Testino: Emma Watson for Vogue Magazine

As you may of noticed, Mario Testino is a photographer who has been heavily featured on the blog before. This is for two reasons really.. 1- Testino is one of the best fashion photographers in the world today 2- he is a huge inspiration to me.

Testino has recently carried out a photoshoot with movie star actress Emma Watson for Vogue Magazine. The shoot highlights his unique abilities as a photographer once more, he always has a knack of creating atmosphere in his photos whilst creating pure beauty at the same time. Enjoy this fantastic set.

40 Stunning Examples of Bokeh in Portrait Photography

Check out these amazing examples of Bokeh (Out of focus blur) in portrait photographs.

Bokeh is a Japanese word used for the aesthetic quality of blur in photography. Most people when looking at photographs do not neccesarily notice the blur in the photograph, but the blur has a huge effect on the way the photo is perceived by the viewer. For a start, there is no longer any distraction from the intended subject of the photograph, which brings the viewers focus solely on to the subject of the image.

In portrait photography, this is sometimes a crucial element as the focus of the image is obviously the model portrayed, removing the background in effect removes any distraction as well as creating a beautiful visual effect as a bonus.

As you can see in the following images, the Bokeh makes the image slightly more magical.
