A portrait can be correctly done… it can be beautiful… it can tell a story and describe emotion.
Eyes, expression, environment, subject positioning, focal length, depth of field, shooting time, point of view, body language, lighting and contrast… everything suggests something to the reader.

If you’re taking a picture for a trip reportage or just for your vacation, if you’re describing street life or just trying to photograph a friend, a relative, a life moment, or a memory… it’s important to learn how to “read”, interpret and describe a subject, especially during interaction with his/her surroundings.
