Working on Portraits

I'm working on improving my portraiture and have basically used any open ended assignments as a chance to work on taking portraits. This is for the upcoming style section where the whole page is photos. I decide to photograph people after church in their Sunday's Best, unfortunately my favorite portrait was of a man who wasn't from Natchez. For a small community newspaper that means we won't print it but I still like it.

Teenagers and children are the main participants and I wanted to work on shooting portraits and decided to take the photos of the kids inside their rooms wearing their costumes.

Here's a link to the story I wrote:
