Portrait Photography - Post a Photo You've taken
Being a fan of portrait photography, I thought I'd start a thread and see if anyone else out there's getting their groove on in this 'space'. Constructive Criticism is greatly appreciated

To start things off, 2 amazing peeps who happen to do t3h ITM sometimes....



(Spokey and Cavey )

You're kinda right, but it doosent really matta

Portrait photography (also known as portraiture) is the capture by means of photography of the likeness of a person or a small group of people, in which the face and its expression is predominant.

^^ The Wikipedia explanation is sweet. Cheers.

Wasnt trying to rinse, was interested, and having read the Wikipedia section, definately think Klips photo fits.

Apologies for n00b hijack

Not at all, it's better to ask a question and become certain of your knowledge

I agree with the rules being broken, if Klip's subject is known for being two feet in the air at all times then it's a picture perfect portrait

Of the first pic posted, there's another which may never become public which may show the sides of the subjects a bit more...well...as they're like

I like this one...but I'm heavily biased

that mantra turns up again

For me portraits are about capturing a feeling or an emotion that's happening for the person or group in question.....Often quite hard, as everyone's been taught to smile for the camera

But we're fools if we sit back and stare at the ground
While the weasels and analysts sing
If we want our place in history, we can't let the frustration
Drive us to fashionable drinking again

They didn't break the mould in that family that's for cert. Although the brother in that pic looks the least similar of the three. Spokes and his other bro are dead ringers.

Ahhh siblings. So intriguing as I have none.
