Portrait Photography by photo-class Portrait Photography by photo-class
Here is a photo-class remake of an exisiting tutorial from the great =jmonzani about some of the basics and some really helpful tips on portrait photography.

Big thanks to :iconjmonzani: for allowing us to use his tutorial in here! We hope you will like it.

Brief:

Portraiture is a wide and exciting area of photography.

I will not give you a “standard” method for Portrait Photography as there are a lof of different opinions on that. Rather, the goal of this article is to give you some useful information based on how I work and the numerous questions I receive.


Hope you enjoy, and don't forget to give us and the author some feeback ;)

That's great, I've been reading about portraiture for a long time, now I'm strongly convinced I should get a faster lens with an f/ 1.2 !!

I was going to use tungsten and halogen light bulbs to try and run an indoor photography studio, since my house's rather small. But I've found that natural light, if I could work it, would come out better. It's just learning to hold my camera still long enough to make sure the pictures don't come out blurry that I need to handle... My tripod unfortunately broke after only about half a year of having it. So I'm glad to have read this tutorial and hopefully it will help me get the shots that I'm looking for. =)
