Portrait shoots always excite me. I plan every single detail in my head. I carefully choose the location, advice on what the person I am going to photograph is going to wear, what colours we aim for and what kind of mood we are going to create together. The most important thing for me is the connection between the subject and me. I always aim to capture their emotions, personalities.
I found the following definition of portrait in Wikipedia:
“A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.”
In light of the above, I am simply thrilled with the results of my latest photo shoot with beautiful Lauren. I hope you agree that her personality shines through the portraits we jointly created 2 weeks ago. I just love when the fun of the photography session is combined with focus on results. In such cases the results are always there! Enjoy!
