Portraits

Portraits are life

After last weeks life advice, lets get back to photography and talk about how much I love portraits.

I love portraits.

First, what is a portrait.

They're really the reason why I got into photography. A good portrait truly captures a person and who they are. Their personality, their ticks, their soul. Right?

Not to say that's wrong but I don't believe that ... anymore.

I do believe a good portrait shares a quick glimmer of a person. Have you ever seen a photograph of someone where they don't look 100% like themselves? Possibly more stressed, or happier? That is what I believe is what a portrait is. Finding something hidden. Capturing something that the naked eye wouldn't see and there is a beauty in that. There is something to be said about a person who can tap into that connection, and get that quick reveal.
