Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who are the most famous master portrait photographers?

A: In the early 1900s, Man Ray and Ansel Adams were two of the most famous portrait photographers, producing fine art images with famous and non-famous subjects. Today, Annie Leibovitz is one of the most recognized names in portrait photography.

Q: What are some examples of portrait photography techniques?

A: One useful trick when taking a portrait with artificial light is to diffuse your light source. Rather than have harsh spotlights on your sitter, reflect it off a nearby wall for a more natural effect. You can also try using gels, which can change the color of the light.

Q: Should props be included in a portrait?

A: Traditional portrait photography rarely includes props, though many photographers believe the right prop can add personality to the image. If you're going to use a prop, make sure it adds something meaningful to the photo or reveals something about your sitter.
