Portrait Photography

Portraits bind friends, family, and lovers together across distance and time.  Portraits are a constant presence.  Portraits make instant and enduring statements, either personal or professional.  Good portraits capture personality or character, bring smiles, invoke memories, and put a face on business and promotion.  Portraits make cherished gifts.

Monitor brightness right?  Adjust brightness down so that the black square on the far right of the scale at left just appears dark and dense and not at all washed out--a true black.  The gray next to it should then appear a darker gray, and the next gray square lighter (somewhere between the two is the same as a Kodak gray card), and so on until the square on the far left, which should be the only one appearing true, bright white.  Adjust contrast through the range until any flare or blooming is just negated or until screen has proper punch.  Eliminate screen glare sources.  Pictures should now appear rich and fully saturated.

Portraiture may be in color, black and white or a sepia varient.

in a fantasy setting, as above, or in conventional styles at top and below.
