The Help-Portrait: Photographing Those In Need

With all the floundering hopelessness in the world today, taking a portrait is probably one of the last things people think about when they want to help those in need. The photographers at the Help-Portrait think differently. On December 10, photographers from around the world will be giving back to their communities by doing what they do best: photography. But not just taking pictures of people. Taking pictures and giving them to their recipients for free. Many people do not realize the value of a portrait; assuming it a mundane necessity of life. But for those who have never had their portrait taken, especially with family or loved ones, it is definitely more than just a picture. If you would like to find out more about Help-Portrait or get some ideas, visit the website from the link above.

I don’t have anything new today, but go ahead and enjoy some stuff I found on the Internet.
