What Is A Portrait
Taking a portrait is one of the highest forms of professional photography. It is a type of photograph that captures a person or a group of people, telling a story or showing their personality in a representation that is true to them. Having a good lighting, composition, background, and pose are elements that will help in creating a beautiful portrait.
The eyes are the windows to the soul and that is why it is important to keep the eyes and face in sharp focus while letting the rest softly fade into the background. However, it truly depends on what you wish to focus on the photograph to tell your very own story.
Portraits also include headshots that are taken mostly for resumés, work use, castings or even personal branding. It is therefore important for the subject to look their best and have the most flattering images of themselves.
