PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

by Dorin Ciobanu

I love portrait photography! I can catch better the expression of the model and it feels more personal. The task of a photographer's goal is not that simple. A good picture is the one that can capture the model's attitude, identity, and personality. The photo may include an interesting background or the model may wear some nice clothes, makeup or accessories, but those factors are not emphasized in the image. Portrait photography is all about the face.

As a portrait photographer, I always have a few highlights in mind.

EXPRESSION

The expression is the only way a model can communicate thoughts and feelings through pictures. Our faces share our emotions. Expressions can be subtle or extreme, but they are the secrets for good pictures. The eyes are indeed the windows to our souls, but our expressions open the door. As a portrait photographer, I always tell my models to feel natural and ignore there’s a camera following them.

Light and Shadows

Every professional photographer knows that Light and Shadow are Yin and Yang in portrait photography. Together they make any picture look more interesting. On the one hand, light is essential for taking a very good picture. On the other hand, shadows are my friend just because they emphasize the light and define the edges. In other words, shadow defines my subjects. This is why it’s very important to set up the best hour for the photo shooting, to choose the right place, and always be aware of the sun.

Environment

I usually take environmental portraits, which is why I have to take care to always connect my models with a location, creating something that goes beyond a standard portrait. It’s a real challenge to find the best places if you want to deliver the best results, but it’s worth it. This is why I love to travel. There’s always a place where I can do magic with my camera.
