The Portrait photography experience
Portrait photography is one of the most common types of photography. We meet portraits in our everyday lives, we see them in social media, in advertisements and in the workplace. It is a way to represent ourselves as well as something else. How a portrait is taken can say a lot about the subject in the shot. A portrait of an artist if often heavily related to their work, for example. The differences in the portrait of a woman and a portrait man can leave important clues to how society perceives different groups. This, of course, creates many possibilities to play around with norms and social patterns in your portrait photography.
A portrait can of course also be beautiful, by working with different subjects, settings, props and effects, you can create serene and sublime portraits that imitate the richness of a painting. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to portrait photography and we are looking forward to seeing your portrait photos in the YouPic community and in the Inspiration feed...
