We’re doing a theme again for this column:  closeup shots.  People do like taking pictures of themselves in Second Life, after all, or having pictures taken of them.  Sometimes it’s a fashion layout, sometimes a Resident wants to update their profile or get a different look in it, sometimes it’s a formal portrait for the wall, and sometimes it’s just for the hell of it.  But there are a lot of “portrait” shots out there, and here’s a selection of them for your consideration.  There won’t be a lot of commentary here by me; when you’re this close in, usually the photo says more than words, in terms of composition, lighting, or Photoshop work.

(Just as a note, the photographer isn’t always the subject here.)
