Consider what goes into a great portrait. An engaging subject, styling, location, hair and makeup, a mastery of your craft as a photographer and a sense of patience.
It probably sounds daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. You can start with the basics and progress to more advanced concepts.
I wrote this eBook to give you ideas beyond of the basics of photography. My hope is to give you some ideas of how to use your existing knowledge of photography to create something vibrant and interesting to the people who view your portraits.
There are plenty of resources that list the same clichés of portrait photography. Lens choice, depth of field, lighting and other technical minutia. This book isn’t about technicalities.
The idea of this book is to share some insight to the creative aspects of portrait photography. I hope you find it useful and informative.
