A portrait is taken to define the likeness of a person or people and even
more so, it is a picture of someone’s face. However, in general the word
has a deeper meaning when it is shown in a photo. Portrait photography is
understood to be of good quality and not only does it capture a person’s
physical look on film, but will also show a characteristic in the manner
that is pleasant to the eye, attractive and a unique mannerism of the
subject. A very well done portrait will at least contain one element that
reveals what the subject’s personality and attitude or any other traits
or features that is natural to the person.

One of the benefits of doing portrait photography is the conversation
that will take place. It takes an understanding and skill of human nature
to be able to take a good portrait. It will require engaging in a
conversation with the subject you are working with, find a suitable topic
that will spark and interest and a reaction. Common ground is a great way
to start when building a rapport with the person, the more you know about
the person you photograph, the easier it will be to take a great quality
shot. It is important for the subject to be at ease with you so their
natural characteristics will show through and appear natural on film.
