Casual Portrait Photography

About This Group

Portrait photography or portraiture is the capture by means of photography of the likeness of a person or a small group of people (a group portrait), in which the face and expression is predominant. The objective is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person's face, although the entire body and the background may be included. As you will see, casual portrait photography means different things to different people. In this group it is NOT about professional models but about 'casual portrait' photography. This is NOT a place to show off your business photos, like fashion models, etc.

GROUP RULES: Only people photography please, and be selective. ONLY YOUR BEST, DON'T SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE IMAGE OF ONE SUBJECT! Do not upload photographs that are not portraits or are not in good taste, (NOTHING OFFENSIVE and NO NUDES), anything borderline will be removed! No mannequins, illustrations, drawings, dolls, animals, insects, etc., only live people. Please read the description of portrait photography above if you are not sure. Thanks for entering your best, and welcome to this group of talented portrait photographers. Only 2 images can be uploaded each day.

The featured images below represent the quality of work created by the members in this group and are regularly changed as new work comes in.
