I believe that portraiture is the Latin of the photography world. Imagine a baseline for all other styles of photography. If you can master portraiture you will be a hot commodity in the professional space. These seemingly simple assignments are often far from simple. Part psychology session, part anthropology, and part fast-paced, spontaneous photography. Famous photographers of the past have spoken of needing to break their subjects to get what they want while others talk of the bonding process. For me, it all counts and each portrait session is unique. Let me walk you through one of mine while showing what I made and why.
I like the concept of your films, great shots. Environmental portrait can be very interesting and tell a lot. I see a lot of popularity of family, Christmas, children’s portraits, etc. in the studio on an artificial background with props (at least in my country), maybe they look nice, but I don’t like them, they are very artificial in most cases. In this case, you can learn much more about a person. I understand that it is not only a portrait of the person himself, but also taking into account his surroundings, objects, where he lives and is? Is it possible to show it in one frame?
It’s a massive puzzle that needs to be solved in ONE frame. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. But when it doesn’t it fuels me to try again.
