Portraits

My Photography captures the likeness of a person or a small group of people, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The objective is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is the person’s face, although the entire body and the background may be included.

A portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position and often shows a person looking directly at the camera. Unlike many other styles of photography, the subjects of portrait photography are non-professional models. Many family portraits and photographs that commemorate special occasions, such as graduations or weddings, are professionally produced and hang in private homes and not intended for public exhibition.
