P52.2 | Week 36 Classic Portraiture

Colossians 1: 9-11  And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.

As my children get older, I honestly believe I spend more time in prayer for them.  We recently celebrated our youngest daughter’s 16th birthday.  As her dad and I handed over a set of keys to her new car. (well, I should say…new to her! It is a used vehicle) brings me to the realization that my ability to protect her is lessening each and every day.

I’ve taken a break from all photography related projects recently, but am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with “Who We Become“.  Our year-long collaborative blog project is dedicated to composition and artistry.

Please click on the individual images to see a larger version on the artist’s website and, in some cases, a series of related images.

This week we explore the three-quarter profile portrait. This is the common pose of classic artists – think of Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or the portraits of Botticelli and other artists of the Renaissance. The three-quarter pose can tells us more than a headshot: it reveals the story and character of the subject through his or her clothing, status and surroundings.
