Im not a fan or a follower of celebrity life but there are some stunning portrait shots (IMHO) taken after the Oscars ceremony on the following link

Whilst they are all crisp and well lit you have to remember that the set up would have been prepared and the exposure and lighting arranged beforehand, so it was a bit like those school photos that the kids were subjected to each year, except in this case the participants were more than willing.

80% were unknown as far as I was concerned! One name struck a bell but I couldn't place her, then blow me down it dawned on me, she helped Clinton in the White House! 8)

Yes Alan agree.
That is why I chose to share them.
It makes the point of taking the time to set up, compose and execute will pay off.
More and more I am seeing shots taken with the machine gun effect and that includes landscapes and still life.

 I found the perspective to be a bit odd on a lot of them (wide angle lens) and some of the cropping jarred a bit , particularly the one of Madam GooGoo.

I regularly cut off people's feet. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

I am sick and tired of so called celebrities, so I liked the 'boredpanda' name of the site. My feelings exactly.

That episode didn't do her any harm if she gets to the Vanity Fair after Oscar's party. I think she looks gorgeous in that dress and outshines the other ladies photos.  :tup:

I think she had a very hard time, and was vilified, as if it was her fault.
But, she always was, what I would call a 'proper' woman, not a celebrity 'stick insect.' I agree she looks better than most of the others.
