People pictures fall into two categories: portraits and candid. Either can be made with or without your subject’s awareness and cooperation.
However near or far your subject, however intimate or distant the gaze your camera casts, you always need to keep in mind the elements of composition and the technique that will best help you communicate what you are trying to say.
Facial expressions means much more than just equipment as photographers say, and thus the importance can be judged by the statement itself. Actually most of them portraits have the object looking straight into the camera, but with time it changed and now a portrait is actually an object i.e a human, in a still position.
In this showcase, we have selected some of the most stunning photographs of human portraits which portray a strong sense of emotion, personality, and life.
A good portrait reveals something about its subject beyond the immediate appearance of the photograph. It includes layers of meaning and depth that portray the person as a whole, not just the superficial initial impression. Great portraits give us an idea of who the person really is, beyond what they’re trying to outwardly depict.
