Portraits with Props: Weekly Photography Challenge

Article from Digital Photography School


As a followup to our recent post on Adding Interest to your Portraits with Props we thought it might be fun to do one of our weekly challenges on the topic.

So this week your challenge is to take and share a portrait photo that has some kind of ‘prop’. Really it can be any kind of prop (subtle or not) that you like whether it be some element of clothing (a hat, scarf etc), an accessory (sunglasses), having your subject hold something (flowers, balloons, an umbrella) or do something (type on a computer, blow a bubble with gum, ride a bike) or anything else.

Have some fun with it!

Once you’ve taken and selected the ‘Portrait with Props’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using our embed tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSPROP to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Backyard challenge where there were some great shots submitted.
