An image that feels something...

April 17, 2017

It is my personal view that a great portrait is one that conveys some sort of feeling or emotion that goes beyond a simple reflection of your face. This can be achieved by setting a mood, preparing proper lighting, and capturing that one perfect moment where everything is just right - the eyes, the lips, the hair - everything! To me, when properly done, a great portrait is an image that feels something... Now I know that phrase may not be grammatically correct, and to some it may not even make sense, but to me those are the best words to describe what a great portrait means to me.
