Portrait photography is definitely one of the most popular forms of photography out there. Let’s face it, long before other types of photography(e.g. the more common landscape photography to more random ones like abstract photography) became popular, portrait photography was one of the earliest forms of photography and one of the ways early photographers made money. That fundamental human need to capture a moment still holds true till today – even when it manifests itself as ‘selfies’. 🙂 The point is, portrait photography is a staple of all photography and can be so powerful when its done right. This week’s photography inspiration is all about portraits from all over the world and what it is about these photos that make them stand out. As per usual, you can either use gallery above to see them all (or just scroll down to see them all).
