Amateur Photographer Monthly Photographic Competition
September’s theme for the forum monthly photographic competition is PhotoSoft portraits – subtle and muted. Shoot a sensitive portrait using soft light and muted colours. Keep the mid-tone contrast low so we can see smooth shapes and delicate form, and maybe just use window light and a reflector. Close-up or distant, make it peaceful, relaxed, soft and natural. Venture away from the energy high street studio.
