Portrait photography is about capturing the essence, personality, identity and attitude of a person utilising backgrounds, lighting and posing. An image becomes a portrait when the image can evoke a sense of connection between the viewer and the portrait photograph.

The image may range from a head study to full body length and may include candid and formal images.

For this competition “group” portraits are not eligible.

What you can learn:

  • How to engage with your subject to make them relaxed.
  • Research the range of poses to create an effective image.
  • Avoid harsh light. Soft light can be generated from a window, studio lighting or a flash.
  • Use the golden hour to take images outdoors.
  • Use a reflector to create the light that is desired. If reflectors are not available use a bight wall or other surface as a reflector.
