Portrait photography and people photography result in vastly different types of images and tell a completely different type of story. Check out our portrait photography tips!
People photography is spontaneous and captures people acting natural without planning to be in a picture. Portrait photography is more complex in that the shot is designed and planned and people are posing to reflect the story you wish to portray in the photo. It gives you elements to notice such as the angle you take the photograph, the lighting you will use, and the expression of emotion on a persons face. While you may be an amateur photographer deciding to take Christmas photos without the expense you will need to have some basic knowledge of techniques used by the professionals.
