During the new digital photography year, I want to explore the world of portraits. When someone takes a photo of their friend, its more of a spontaneous action then a planned one. I want to see the difference between all the different types of portraits; whether they are candids (model, fun) or just taken on the spot. I also want to explore the difference between color portrats, and black and white ones. I want to see how elements such as location, make-up, fashion and season affect a portrait. A picture should be able to tell a story, but a portrait should be able to tell you about that person. By the end of the year I want to be able to take good portrait, but also know how to take one.
