Environmental portraits tell a story, by allowing a glimpse into the world of another individual, with a depth that surpasses the expressive capacity of a formal portrait. The subject is revealed by the photographer’s use of design, and composition of the background setting, with special attention to light, posture, expression, composition, and rapport. Each element divulges another aspect of the subject’s personality, requiring careful attention to detail. The technical concerns about light, camera angle and lenses, backgrounds, selective focus, and composition can sometimes overshadow the importance of making a connection with another human being. Honoring, respecting, and communicating with your subject are the first steps to making a meaningful, and storytelling photograph. However, it’s imperative to use good lighting techniques, both natural and with flash, to create the mood, and description of the scene, and capture the essence of the subject. Patience and observation help the photographer choose the right time and place, to capture the subject appropriately.
