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...

:bulletblack:Shoot Yourself - Photography Contest
:bulletblack: Open Forum - Throw your questions to the photography CVs and expect the answers (as much as possible) by the end of the week!

:bulletblack: Getting your Emotive on - Definitions, examples and features
:bulletblack: Uncovering Talent and Talent Spotlights
:bulletblack: Artistic Nude, Fetish,  Body Art,  & Pin-up/Glamour - Overviews and links to previous educational material covered by other CVs.
:bulletblack: Classic Portraits
:bulletblack: Expressive Portraits
:bulletblack: Infants & Children
:bulletblack: When and When not to use the Miscellaneous Gallery
:bulletblack: Self Portraits and how they do and don't belong!
:bulletblack: Spontaneous Portraits - shooting on the hoof and Improving your Candid Photography
:bulletblack: Weddings & Wedding Photography
:bulletblack: Permissions

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!

Something that has confused me for a long while, if I do a drawing of a character from a show or movie and draw an actor as that character. Like say drawing Heath ledger as the joker, it's a portraite, should this go under fan art?

I think it should :nod:

But I've seen portraits of actors and musicians out of the fan art category.
