1. “a painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person, especially one depicting only the face or head and shoulders.”
Yes that is what “the dictionary” defines as a portrait but, to me a portrait is so much more. Portrait photography is more than just creating an image of somebody’s face; it's an artistic representation of a person's attitude, outlook, emotions, and core. Here is where I break with convention. Not just the face! The person and sometimes that image is actually not of the face or maybe the person at all. Yes the yes speak deeply of the person’s story but too can the hands, or the curve of the back, or much else that is at that person’s center.
Today’s photography tip of the day is…. Find your own way of creating meaningful, revealing selfies. This wall is a portrait of what draws me into an image. It’s a direct, albeit abstract, reflection of me. My eye and of my way of seeing the world.
