Be Part Of SonyAlphaPortrait Month

Compared to so many photographic endeavors, portraits are different because the portrait photographer and the subject are bonded together in the process of creation, but it's the photographer who is in possession of the full complete vision. It's a unique artistic collaboration. As Richard Avedon said, “A portrait photographer depends upon another person to complete his picture. The subject imagined, which in a sense is me, must be discovered in someone else willing to take part in a fiction he cannot possibly know about.” 

July is portrait month at Alpha Universe and throughout the month, you can be part of the #SonyAlphaPortrait challenge on Instagram. To submit, just tag your best portraits with #SonyAlphaPortrait. Along with @SonyAlpha, we'll we watching the tag and looking for images and photographers to spotlight.
