Part 2 – Portrait photography, or portraiture, is aimed at capturing the personality of a person or group of people by using adequate lighting, backdrops, and poses. But most importantly, the craft and skill of compelling portraiture are to pinpoint the context for each of your creations.
Portraits are commissioned for various occasions and fields, such as engagement & wedding portraits, school events (high school senior portraits), private gifts (baby portraits, family portraits, solo…), commercial purposes, or artistic expression.
Good portrait photographers can capture the personality, but as a photographer, you have a responsibility to your subjects. Portrait photos affect emotions like no other photography genre. It’s not just the result that matters. Capturing someone’s portrait is more than a hobby or profession; it’s a matter of trust. Primarily if you work in the realm of private portraiture.
