Rotate for Portrait

While photographing my nieces I stumbled upon this trick. Instead of talking a straight portrait with camera level, rotate it slightly clockwise or anti-clockwise for two different poses. An example:

Clockwise rotation of camera:
DSF22553

Anti-clockwise:
DSF22552

It works best for close ups. There should be little in the background to reveal the camera rotation. The amount of rotation is up to you.

Another example:
DSF22609
and:
DSF22610

Try it.

Eid Mubarak

Today we celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr in Pakistan. It is the day after the month of fasting, Ramadan, is finished. Applying Hena is popular among young girls on this day:

After rain the light was beautiful. Had a little fun with 100mm E lens on an extension tube:
