Portrait photography is all about the face. FotoFrame Studio’s goal is to take a carefully crafted photograph of a person’s distinguishing facial features while capturing the person’s attitude, identity, and personality. The photo may include a blurred background and the person’s body, but those factors are not emphasized in the image.
A portrait is carefully planned and rehearsed with the client. That’s why a candid photo is not considered a portrait. Does that mean that a portrait cannot appear candid? Definitely not; this should be taken into account depending on the client’s overall attitude and the purpose of the image.
