ART303 Photography 1

Portrait photography has always been my favorite.One of the main reasons I love portraitphotography is because it is so versatile. I lovethis quality of portrait photography because itmeans that it has both practical and creative uses.The photos I chose don’t necessarily gotogether aesthetically, but they do illustrate theversatility of portraits. Even though I used thesame model in all three of my photos, each photo hasa completely different aesthetic andpurpose. Portraits can be used to simply capture animage of the subject, but they can also beused to transform the subject into a work of art.
