Dear Hivean friends,
Hope you are having a nice weekend!
I am having a great one and I would like to crown it with nice post.
By now most of you already know that new photography contest is in town. It is hosted by Photography Lovers Community or better say @derangedvisions.
Last two themes (animals, landscape) were very popular and we were able to see many great entries. I also did two posts reflected with theme of each week and I am happy that I received so many comments. I will try to keep that pattern in the future as well, continuing this week with theme PORTRAITS.
I know that the host really likes this theme, so I had to put extra effort in order not to disappoint our community leader :) I also like taking photos of people, but only on travels and not on all travels, but only the ones where cultural difference is big. Browsing through my archive I didn't find any portrait photo from Europe and North America, just few of them from South America and thousands of them from Africa and hundreds from Asia. Usually I value first three continents the most connected with photography overall, especially landscape. But as the theme is different now I had to focus on other destinations. Ethiopia stands out as the majority of photos there are connected with people photography. It is an amazing experience visiting all these tribes and meeting their culture. Other African destinations I visited also offer a great mix of nature beauties and cultural heritage. From Asia I can say I only visited Indonesia in the way that photography was big part of my travel. That reflects in my photos as I have a lot to show from Indonesian travel back in 2017, portrait photography included.
I don’t want to be too long in my intro as there is quite a lot of photos waiting on you below, so let me just invite you to participate at the contest at the following link.
Enjoy and please share your view on the best portrait photography from the selection below!
