12x53 Photograph of the Month Competition. Round 12. Black and White Portraiture. Judged by Fujifilm X-Photographer @__knut__
53mm X-Pert Tips for Black and White Portraiture. Part 2
Here is your second instalment of tips from our judge, Fujifilm X-Photographer @__knut__
to help you with your entries.
The shot used in this post is another example from Knut’s wide repertoire of XF35mm portrait shots for you to take inspiration from.
I always say ”In every portrait there is at least two persons. The person in the picture and the viewer! There has to be a connection between them so that the viewer feels that they communicate with each other.” You can find millions of videos on the net on how to light a portrait and how to retouch a portrait, but I haven’t yet found a single one that teaches you this. It is the “secret” of how to make a really, really good portrait.
More exemplars will follow in future posts leading up to the competitions end date of August 1st 2018.
