This week we begin our one month compositional study of portraits. We begin with one of the most classic portraits of all all time- the headshot. A headshot typically comprises the head to shoulder area. Making a good headshot portrait is very important, as many people rely on them for business purposes and as their first visual introduction to the world. To the photographer, the portrait is a challenge and extends far beyond the technicalities as we strive to capture the personality, spirit and essence of the person. They say the eyes are the key to the soul; you can often see how the subject feels by looking at their eyes. This might not be a traditional headshot, but I definitely think his personality comes through here!
