Portrait Photography

I’ve been doing portraits for years, sometimes in a fairly controlled setting, and sometimes just winging it. Sometimes the results are useful, sometimes they aren’t. But it’s certainly an important aspect of photography to master, whether it be for promotional purposes or just for a family Christmas card.

The challenge is usually getting the lighting right, and getting everyone into position. Of course, the more people you try to get into the photo, the more shots you’ll need, because out of twenty shots you might, if you’re lucky, get one where everyone’s got his or her eyes open and is looking in the correct direction.

My camera has a nice self-time setting on it that will wait up to twenty seconds and then fire up to nine times after that, although I have to make sure I’ve got very fresh batteries in my flash if I’m hoping for it to go off every single one of those times.

Below is an album of some various images I’ve collected, some recent, some not as recent, that I think illustrate some of the principles of portrait photography.
