This forum is exclusively about people and portrait photography topics. When it comes to people photography, it doesn't matter if you want to take candid shots or portraits; if you’re capturing the subject from afar or at close distance; or whether your subject is aware you’re taking the photo or not, this forum will can teach you about the basic elements of composition and technique that will help communicate what you’re trying to interpret. If you want to learn about portraiture, whether it is in set up in a studio, taken on the streets or in an event, or in a fashion shoot, this is the go-to forum for you.
Do you know that Kodak designed the first digital camera in December 1975? Steve Sasson designed this camera and it weighed 8 pounds. It recorded only black and white at 0.01 megapixels. Imagine capturing a portrait with this camera. It’ll surely shed off some pounds and hide a few freckles.
Even before, the most popular form of early photography was the portrait. So, participating in this forum and capturing your own images actually mean contributing to a history of people photography. The very first portraits were treasured because of their ability to present the facial appearance of people revealing family resemblance from one generation to another.
