Photography Challenge Monthly (June 2009)
For this month's theme are all about...
-By ‘on location’ or ‘environmental’ portraits I mean portraits taken of people in a situation that
they live in (work, rest or play) and/or a place that says something about who they are.
Before I get into some ‘how to’ tips for taking environmental portraits let me chat a little
about ‘why’ I like them.
Why do I prefer environmental portraits?
* they give context to the subject you’re photographing
* they give points of interest to shots (something you need to watch as you don’t want to
distract from your subject too much)
* they help your subject relax
* they often give the viewer of your shots real insight into the personality and lifestyle of your subject
