Portraiture Photography By Famous Photographers


Have you ever noticed the depth in the portrait of Mona Lisa’s smile? Oh off course you must have noticed and still you must be taking interest to extract more form that glorious piece of art by Leonardo Davinci, because that’s what the art is about, that’s what the artist do and that’s what the beauty of a strong portrait is. The best thing about Portraiture Photography is that you never get bored while standing in front of a portrait and staring at its lighting, expressions, emotions, depth and all. The more you see it, the more interest you take in it.

The main focus of Portraiture Photography is the face and its expressions. The portrait can consist of a single or group of persons, animals, birds, etc. It is the creativity and talent of the artist that to what extent he captures a portrait playing with the lightings, surroundings, poses, complexions, expressions and everything that he sees from his artistic point of view.

We have been in search of such mind-blowing portraiture photography and today we are very privileged to have a collection of some famous photographers for you. We would suggest you not to see this collection, if you don’t like to be captivated…

Aah! Just kidding, let’s be captivated, let’s be soothed and let’s enjoy!

Kim Ayres Thank you Dennis :)

Captivating portrait. I like the absence of detail on the left side of his face – one wonders if it is somehow disfigured. Nice chiaroscuro.
Kim Ayres Thank you for your words :)

Fantastic picture ! I would only black out that soft light on the right in the background, but even with that it looks perfect :)
Kim Ayres Thank you Artur :)

it is hard to tell if i like it as it is… or with less deep shadow in the right side of the face. either way, that’s a great shot!
Kim Ayres Thank you Antonio :)

Well, Kim, I just came from critquing your “Time” photo, and I see now there’s no doubt you’re a fine portrait photographer! Excellent work – this leaves me wanting to know more about the sitter, and as I’ve said before “mystery is a good thing”.
Kim Ayres Thank you for your kind words, Louise :)
Just discovering this one… I love the way you capture portrait. Keep going!
Kim Ayres Thank you Jérôme :)

wonderful portrait kim – you can’t take your eyes of him, but it’s also quite unsettling..his gaze is very direct. i’m liking your other work in critique too…what a wonderful setting that lovely old house is.
Kim Ayres Thank you Eliza :) 

This was about the 4th image I submitted to 1x and it was accepted. Unfortunately I’ve never got past the screeners since :)

Kim Ayres thank you :)
beautiful eye….what you do made a beautiful eye?sorry my english! :)
Kim Ayres Thank you Mario :) 

The eye was highlighted using a combination of the “dodge” and “burn” tools in Photoshop, to accentuate the contrast between light and dark. I hope that helps :)
