Portrait or Portraiture Photography is about a person or a group of people arranged in a certain way to convey the mood, emotions and possibly even a story. On DeviantART there are many sub-categories within the People & Portraits Gallery and some of those are self explanatory whilst others take a little bit more planning and thinking about to achieve. Throughout this week, we'll be working to hopefully clean up misconceptions and straighten out parts of the People & Portrait Galleries. So here's what's happening...
Shoot Yourself - Photography Contest
Open Forum - Throw your questions to the photography CVs and expect the answers (as much as possible) by the end of the week!
Getting your Emotive on - Definitions, examples and features
Uncovering Talent and Talent Spotlights
Artistic Nude, Fetish, Body Art, & Pin-up/Glamour - Overviews and links to previous educational material covered by other CVs.
Infants & Children
When and When not to use the Miscellaneous Gallery
Self Portraits and how they do and don't belong!
Spontaneous Portraits - shooting on the hoof and Improving your Candid Photography
Weddings & Wedding Photography
So let's get started - we're keen to get your feedback on the People & Portrait Photography gallery here on deviantART. So why not have a browse of the actual gallery and drop your thoughts in a comment here. Additionally whilst many people note me asking where to categorise their work - we want you to be able to decipher that for yourselves. So go public with your queries and drop them here, we'll aim to answer them throughout the week if not by the end of it. Be sure to be watching or a member of #projecteducate in order to get all the articles throughout the week!
