We as the photographer bring ourselves into every image we take; be it landscape, documentary or portrait. It is what makes an image of the same scene unique to each photographer. In turn, the viewer brings in their own visual experience when they view an image.
In a portrait, when a subject is in front of a camera their expression changes continuously, it is us as the photographer to chooses the moment in which we decide to click the shutter and capture that unique essence of the subject. Lighting can create a mood, evoke drama or quietness. It can be soft and hard and it can change the shape of someone’s face, the same with the lens that you use. The relationship between you and the sitter is paramount to the success of every shoot.
