Best of Photo Challenge: Creative Portraiture

Posted by Darlene Bouchard — 2 Dec 2010

When people look at a portrait you create they see the person in it, but in reality you are in that picture as well. Not only does your style shine through, but you decide what include or not in the frame, along with what to leave in focus or blur away. All these things reflect the the person in the image along with you as a photographer, which is why we teamed up with Lensbaby and asked to see your best creative portrait for this photo challenge.

With thousands of amazing portraits entered in this photo challenge it was no easy task to pick the winners. We'd like to thank everyone who participated, and congratulate the JPGers who will soon be adding a Lensbaby to their camera kit!

Below are the winners along with some of our favorite images from Photo Challenge: Creative Portraiture:
