A excellent portrait is a picture of a person that is able to convey a narrative. A good composition combines the scene in your imagination with the scene on the ground. Play around with angles. The tone of a picture is altered by angels. A story can also be told by including a lot of background information. A compelling image can be created by pairing a little subject with a vast background. Create portraits that evoke feeling. You can experiment with cropping as well. For instance, crop in closely to support the story. Make sure your framing is good. Portraits are images of a person that also convey emotion and a story. Planning and thinking are important.
