Please read the group rules carefully before posting. Continued posters of non-modern portraits will be banned. This group is heavily moderated, so save us all some time. Ta :)PLEASE ENTER OUR THIRD PORTRAIT COMPETITION !!!!!

Group Description

Portraits that avoid cliches...... modern, art photography style.... fresh, cool and ...well, modern ! I am thinking likenesses rather than fantasy images. So that the photo looks like the subject.

Do Post it here if.....

IT IS A DELIBERATE PORTRAIT ie, the subject knew you were taking it.

IT IS MODERN, we are looking for something fresh, art photography, fashion editorial style. There are plenty of other portrait groups, don't post them all here !

IT ISN'T CHEESY. Come on, you know what cheesy is. I find its often smiling.

Dont post it here if...

ITS A SNAPSHOT

ITS A STUDIO SHOT OF A GIGGLING BABY or similar.

YOU CANT IMAGINE SEEING IT IN AN ART GALLERY, FASHION MAGAZINE or ART PHIOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE.

Our second competition winner and flickr star, Lou O' Bedlam !!! (Thanks for entering Lou )

MORE RULES...... Clones are fine as long as the figures adhere to these rules. Most of the time, those in the pool will give you a good idea what is wanted, if we have managed to keep up with our moderating. This pool will be heavily moderated to adhere to this vision.

Show your support for the photographers in our fight against cheesy portraiture by telling them, and everyone else, where you saw their photo. Just copy this code and paste it into the comment box.

It should look like this when it’s done.

Please do not be disappointed if myself or one of the other admins or moderators remove your photo from the pool , I have a particular vision or the group and I want it to be like an art photography gallery. There are loads of other portrait groups, post em there...

It doesn't mean we don't like the photo just that we don't think it fits the group and the other photos in it. :) Might be a too traditional pose, lighting too studioish or a blurry vignette or just a feeling. Whatever, we still love ya !
