Portrait photography focuses on capturing a person’s likeness by having an individual sit or pose for the camera in a specific way. Typically, the most prominent part of a portrait photo hones in on a person’s face. Other components, such as backgrounds and props, are still visible but are not the main focus.

A portrait photographer will often spend a few minutes posing the subject (or subjects) for each picture. Paying attention to small details, such as a slight tilt of the head, a soft gaze, or a natural placement of the hands, is key to taking successful portrait photos.

The subjects of portrait photography are usually everyday people, not models. Memorable lifetime events can be captured in school photos, dance recital photos, graduation photos, and family portraits.
