Portrait photography is often considered an art form that involves capturing your subject or group’s facial expressions, personality, or mood using composition, lighting, and backgrounds. Some photographers see portraiture as an artistic representation of a subject’s attitude. Portraiture is by far the most common form of photography, and creating compelling portraits requires connecting with people.
