Portraiture



A while ago I developed an interest in taking Portrait/Glamour Photographs. This was inspired by a few of my contacts on Flickr and I have started learning the tricks of the trade. The main problem is finding suitable models as because of my age nearly all my friends and family are a bit "Over the Hill". I was lucky enough to be invited by a friend/very distant relative to lunch the other day and his beautiful daughter and her equally beautiful cousin were there and I got to take a few shots.
