Portrait photography is all about the face. A photographer's goal is to take a carefully crafted photograph of a person's distinguishing facial features while capturing the person's attitude, identity, and personality. The photo may include a blurred background and the person's body, but those factors are not emphasized in the image. A portrait is carefully planned and rehearsed with the client. That's why a candid photo is not considered a portrait. Does that mean that a portrait cannot appear candid? Definitely not; this should be taken into account depending on the client's overall attitude and the purpose of the image. A portrait, regardless of whether it appears candid, should be planned with the client. The background, props, client's dress and position, and the angle of the photo should be prepared before the actual photo shoot takes place.
