- Bill's Favourite Secretary - (Portrait in Full Colours+ A Border) Challenge finished on Sunday, 04 Dec 2016 Photograph a woman (as in one who possesses XX chromosomes and not had a gender altering surgery before.) Her age should appear to be ~ 18 to 26. The settings should be one where she would appear to be working, sorting out issues in hand. Who is Bill? You tell us (or not). Please add a border. Please do not submit a snapshot, she should be posing for you and her face should be visible. Please make sure lighting and composition is top notch and she's, you know, dressed 'legally' , which is not unlike the other challenges on dpreview.com. Glossy lipstick and thick rimmed scholarly glasses are fine by me if you're going for the retro look. But beware that there may be some female viewers out there who are overly sensitive and easily offended by the secretary's physical beauty and youth. Finally, I might be a few months early but I'd like to wish Happy Secretary's Day to those lovely young women out there. Thanks for taking care of the Bills out there.
