Good read. I have been doing this with a personl I went to high school with. We have been conversing back and forth for 2 weeks now. It's a materinty shoot so I have been drilling her with questions about her life: jobs, hobbies, sexual dementer, favorite colors does your husband hunt, he's a fireman, she' s an insurance sales but also a aeorobics intructor. I have got enough stuff compiled for this shoot ...that i may get paid for it...LOL thanks for help have a good day.

No, Oboy, I'm interested and checked out the article. I try to differentiate the key difference between a portrait and a snapshot. The snapshop documents something, someone, or an event. When a portrait will deliver an idea of what the subject is about to a total stranger. The two approaches have their place in our lives and while most photog's shoot snapshots and call them portraits, their images relate no more information than to document. Of course there is an exception to every rule but isn't it true that an observer can feel a portrait but a snapshot is soon forgotten. Just an opinion. Good subjective question. Be patient with replies, alot of us scratch our heads before we write.
