Portraits of Adults

I refer to portriats of adults as Lifestyle Portraits because I feel a portrait depicts the subject doing what they love, or in a setting that feels comfortable to them and speaks to what kind of person they are.

Scenes such as reading on a couch with a pet, drinking coffee in a sunlit nook, playing an instrument, or building something in a workshop are subjects that transform a simple portrait into a work of art regardless of who the sitter is. In many cases the activities and settings make for a more revealing portrait than a straight ahead likeness.

Portraits can be painted from all sorts of photos. Wedding Photos can be an excellent reference for portraiture.
