Portrait photographyWhat is in a Portrait?
A portrait study is a photo-session or sessions done over a period of time and the intention is to document a person – either their progress or change – like we do while our children grows up and we snap away trying to capture them.
but what makes a good portrait?
A good portrait is when you can recognize the person you are looking at in the image – not only by their facial features but by seeing their uniqueness and quirky personality traits.
Not all photographers are the same – and that’s meant in a positive way. Portraits tells as much a story about the photographer as it does about the subject so it’s beneficial to meet up first and see if you ‘click’ – pun intended!
Things to look out for when you are in the market for portraits – whether it be corporate or more informal.
- Most photographers have a unique style – be it their editing style or shooting style. Up close and personal, odd angles or a specific type of lighting to compliment you.
- Availability of commissioned work to assist you in making your decision.
- A good understanding and sense of comfort with the photographer – there’s nothing as awkward as when you don’t feel comfortable with your photographer. It’s a good idea to meet up first – after all, portraiture is an up-close and personal affair.
