Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

I try very hard to make ALL of my portraiture creative, as the cateogry into which I am placing these photos demands. So in this series, I sought to obviously differentiate these portraits from many of my others. I decided to do so by actually framing myself, literally. I also placed myself in lighting that would fade away from my face and body, darkening my surroundings, and thus accentuating my person, over what is around me. Since I often include my subjects' surroundings as an integral part of my portraiture, NOT doing so now is, for me, creating a new look. In these portraits, I am trying to draw the eye directly to myself and my body. My facial expression, my hair, my eye makeup, my clothing, and my jewelry are intended to form an environment in and of itself. So here I am, literally framed, and photographically frozen, forever. I do not care that I look silly; I just wanted to look alive, interactive and as though I am a creator of photography, caught in the process of creating.
