Portret ni narejen v fotoaparatu, temveč na obeh straneh. (Edward Steichen)

 

Portret je upodobitev osebe in njene osebnosti. Načeloma predstavlja le obraz ali doprsni rez, lahko pa se predstavi človek v njegovem okolju, s katerim nakažemo intimnost. Paziti moramo, da ne izpostavimo gub, znamenj, mozoljev, še slabše pa je, če obraz posnamemo tako, da je videti deformiran.

A portrait is a depiction of a person and their personality. In principle, it represents only a face or a bust incision, but a man in his environment can be presented to indicate intimacy. We must be careful not to expose wrinkles, scars, pimples, and even worse, if the face is photographed so that it looks deformed.
