A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.
Before I started my wedding photography adventure, I mainly photographed portraits. I fell in love with black and white pictures from the first day. It's all about transferring emotions and personality, so why would you need to use a colour for it? People are not that complicated, right? of course, I'm kidding... ;) I don't think colours are needed to create something timeless. And this is all portraits are about, being timeless. We want to capture the moment of our life using just light and shadow.
