A portrait is a way to see how beautiful you are

In life is important to have memories made with pictures and people. Pictures that are not just basic full body pictures, but only facial pictures. Somewhere where someone can see the smallest sparkle in your eye, the shortest hair on your head and the biggest smile on earth. Nowadays people are not really sure what portrait is, but Paul Caponigro with one sentence explained, he said “It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks alike, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are”.

The most important field of photography since its invention is a portrait. Every person wants to have their own image as a document or a memory of a time that has passed and the changes that it brought.

  • The procedure in the image when shooting a person can be different. It can be: a whole person with the environment, the whole person in the whole format images shot to the knee, to the waist, head, etc.
  • The portrait shows the person that in the picture with his head, chest and shoulders. In such a recording, head is pictured near and the person is easy to recognize at first glance.There are two basic conditions to be met by portrait painting: resemblance and character. The effect of the image will be completely displayed only if we show how that person looks.
  • The similarity may be the average, daily, typical etc. Will the person in the picture look similar to themselves depends on the technique of recording, lens, lighting, expression, retouching etc.
  • Studies extraordinary expression, as are the face of the person seen at the time of excitement, elation, sadness, etc., are by themselves motives.On such images is not important similarity, but an expression on his/her face that manifested mime and gestures.

So, if you would like to take portrait these are the main parts you should be careful about.
