Portraiture is photography of a person or group of people that captures the personality of a subject by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses.
Main approaches to portrait photography are:
- Environmental: depicting a subject in their environment, for example: work, home, city, etc.
- Constructionist: building an idea around the portrait, for example: happiness, romance, trust, etc.
- Candid: photographing subjects going about their daily business without their knowledge.
I tend to mix all three in my style of photography and I've had great success so far.
