A Showcase of Portrait Photography

December 16th, 2011

When photographers set out to take a picture of someone, there are those who say they are out to capture a lie; while others will argue that what they are really trying to get at the heart of is the truth. Not matter what side of the fence it is you come down on, the fact is, when the photographer gets up close and personal with their subject, truth or lie, something magical happens. With so little between the model and the viewer, the emotions and impact come across so much clearer. No interference.

Today we take you up close and personal with a showcase of some truly inspired portraits taken by some gifted photographers. Through their lenses they have filled their frames with some of the purest emotions they could capture, and today we are lucky to be able to feature these emotive works to our readers. Enjoy this collection of stunning portrait photography.

    They all look the same to me – adolescent eyes with reflections.

    Very fun images. It made me realize that my portfolio is woefully lacking in freckled faces. I enjoyed the creative look of the various images, nice collection!

    Great technical skills. lighting and so on but emotions – as claimed in the body text – nope. But the aesthetics makes most of them really stunning!

    I wish more folks would illustrate older folks, with wrinkles and folks who are not perfect….. more men… I only saw to males here. mostly young females..

    The human face has so many expressions, the aging face can also be so beautiful… a blemish or two is OK.
