Each Year Black and White Magazine has a portfolio contest. You enter 8-12 photos as your portfolio. In 2009 my portfolio was selected for an Excellence Award, and was published in the magazine. So, each year I enter another portfolio, but none have received awards since 2009. Even though my portfolio for this year was not selected, I was especially happy with it, so I wanted to share it here. Four of the photos are already posted on the site under “People–Portraits”–I am posting the remaining eight photos here. I love taking spontaneous photos of people–I hope you enjoy these.
