Candid Portraiture

What makes a good portrait?

"Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.” - Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)

What makes a good portrait is not the model : it’s the eye of the photographer.

Greg Williams shared an interesting confession lately.

He said : “People often assume some of my pictures are created with large production teams, sets and effects, but like on this occasion it can just be me, my cameras and an umbrella.”

And this is all photography should be about… Sharing moments.
