  1. I wouldn’t say I’m superb at portraits, but yes, I love to grab the right candid whenever I can, and sometimes the effects are fabulous. I’d say I’m a better amateur photographer of landscapes, though. I have a stunning one that I’ve enlarged and hung in our living room of what sunrise looks like from the bottom of the Grand Canyon 😉 . Yes, though, these tips were very useful, so thanks!

      Me neither – portraits are not really my thing. Your Grand Canyon photo sounds amazing!
      Thank you – glad you found them helpful!

    Very nice. As I get older I tend to take less portraits maybe because of angles or whatever. I take these tips into consideration.

      I’ve never been big on portrait photography… I much prefer abstract or landscape to be honest! Hope my tips are useful…

    I used to do a lot of portrait photography before we moved a few years ago. Now, it’s mostly my boys that I photograph. Oh, and all the students at the elementary school because I am the yearbook photographer there! When I did more portrait photography, I always took one of their feet/shoes. I don’t know why, but they were always fun photos to have.

      Wow, that sounds like a lot of portraits to shoot!! I like taking feet pictures too… I’ve no idea why though!?

    I’m not sure if I have a favorite style but I love portraits. I went to the Portrait Gallery in DC and it was incredible

    I love abstract portraits too as they allow for more creative surprises. I’m not a fan of selfies at all but yes, they are hugely popular.

    • KateKreates says:

      Exactly – I like photos that are a bit different… I’m hoping selfies are a craze that will disappear, although I doubt it!

    I am not so into portraits of me or selfies. In fact, I don’t usually like my own photos. But I do really enjoy taking photo portraits of family and friends and I am pretty good at this.

  9. NAti says:

    these are such great tips! I think portraits are really difficult, especially getting the light right on the subject!

    • KateKreates says:

      Thank you! You’re right – good portraits are tricky… they definitely take practice!

    Abstract photos are some of my favorites. I love that they are life without any sort of rhyme or reason.

    • KateKreates says:

      Mine too! I agree – life is usually very ordered and every so often it’s good to break away from that and look at things differently!
