Portrait photography or portraiture is the capture by means of photography of the likeness of a person or a small group of people (a group portrait), in which the face and expression is predominant. The objective is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person's face, although the entire body and the background may be included. As you will see, casual portrait photography means different things to different people.
In this group it is NOT about photos of professional models or entertainers, but about portrait photography of 'everyday people'. Look at the featured photos below as an example of what images I am looking for in this group.
GROUP RULES: Only people photography please, and be selective. ONLY YOUR BEST, DO NOT SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE IMAGE OF ONE SUBJECT!
Do not upload photographs that are not portraits of people or are not in good taste, (NOTHING OFFENSIVE and NO NUDES), anything borderline will be removed!
No mannequins, illustrations, drawings, dolls, ANIMALS, insects, etc., only live people. Please read the description of portrait photography above if you are not sure.
I reserve the right to remove any images that I feel are not appropriate for this group without notice to the artist, so be selective.
Thanks for entering your best, and welcome to this group of talented portrait photographers.
