Learning Portrait Photography

Philip & Alex

There’s a wealth of experiences about portrait photography that you can find in this one webpage, much to learn not only from its author Philip Greenspun but also from the many insightful comments it generated.

Philip states the obvious when he says “the most important thing about portrait photography is an interest in your subject.” But sometimes we just take this for granted.

The article discusses a broad range of topics that touch on lighting, lens, film, camera, etc., but the last part is best: a lively discussion in reader’s comments about portrait photography, a virtual archive of feedback from February 1998 to November 2006.
