Guest Photo of the Day: Just Before Bedtime

Just Before Bedtime, originally uploaded by The Derek.
Some photographers strive to take creative, "artistic" photographs, and others simply seek to take fine studio portraits. Derek McClure falls into the latter category--but that doesn't mean his portraits are in any way devoid of artistry! On the contrary, within the limits of traditional portraiture, Derek does an excellent job of capturing the spirit of his subjects. This one's a great example--a picture of his daughter, obviously used to having her picture taken; the photograph captures not only her pretty face and curls, but also the personality in her pose, her gaze, her expression, and the light in her eyes.
