Portraits and People snaps (Black and White)

I enjoy photographing people.

Portraiture...

The dictionary defines “portraiture” as “a record of a certain aspect of a particular
human being as seen by an artist”. The most important attribute of a good portrait is
that it captures some individualism of the subject. The picture should not merely be a
shot of a pretty girl or an old man but a portrait of that particular pretty girl or
old man and no other person. Portraitists are first and foremost observers, noting human
traits, elements of character, idiosyncrasies, habits and gestures and singling out and
capturing the individual features of each sitter. - K Terberg (WIS 1988 IB final paper Art)

In short, everyone is unique and everyone is beautiful..and that... is why I love taking snapshots of people.
