and the next theme is...FACES

Faces are just about my favourite thing to photograph. For me, capturing the essence of someone's personality in one picture is the greatest photographic challenge. I find I take better pictures of people I know than people I don't. When I meet people to take their portrait, I like to talk to them for a while to get to know them. I don't just want to know what angle to photograph them from, I want to know what they are really like, so I can be sure that my photograph is an accurate representation of their personality.

But perhaps you prefer photographing strangers:

Or maybe you will try to capture a moment in time with your child. Something you can look back on in the future, when they have grown up:

... and she came diving into the world

Or you could always try a profile:

And what about our furry friends? Have you ever tried to get the essence of your pet's personality in one shot? This cat looks like quite a character:
