What makes a great portrait? does it depend on lighting, the beauty of the subject or following the rules and structure of portrait photography? Following all the rules will result in a decent portrait, but you have to consider that every person is different in look and personality. The real beauty can be found in the little details that make your subject who they are. A great portrait derives from communication, getting to know the person in front of the camera, analyzing their mannerisms and making sure you capture them in a single frame. Waiting for that unique look; pulling up an eyebrow, genuine laughter, fiddling with a wedding ring. Capturing those moments is how you make sure the portrait gives an insight into who a person is, instead of simply showing what they look like.
