The Face of Lomography

7

One of the greatest things that photography in general can do is to capture emotions through people's portraits. Whether it may be happy, sad, angry or in sorrow, a definitive click of the shutter can make it a treasure forever.

That’s why here in the Community, we have decided to feature the best portraits uploaded in our website! And yes, once again, we have pushed our limits to the minimum of 50. Lomography, when it comes to capturing people’s special moments truly is something!

So come and browse this week’s Gallery Section as we feature Portraits.
