Frequently Asked Questions

Who are the most famous master portrait photographers?

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.

What are some examples of portrait photography techniques?

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.

Should props be included in a portrait?

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.
