I feel like I've neglected this, but I guess not...it's only been 5 days or so. I think I'm getting to the final stretch with the most recent portrait, though I'm still not calling it done. It has a different feel to it than the others, but I think it has more to do with the following:
- the source photo: the source photo was not as clear as the others, so there is less detail. Less detail in the photo=less detail in the portrait.
- vicinity to the camera: this comes back to the # of subjects for obvious reasons.
- # of subjects: the more people in the portrait, the less focus I can provide to each. Basically, this is the key to the whole portrait - the more subjects, the further they have to be from the camera, and the less detail it will provide.
