What makes a portrait? Portrait sessions with a twist


Interesting video by Canon Australia on YouTube. What gives a portrait its distinctive note? How does the photographer shape the final outcome of a portrait? Six photographers portrait the same man, making six distinctive portraits.  Have a look at the video below, it’s pretty interesting and won’t take too much of your time (it’s just 3:16 minutes)

A photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than by what’s in front of it.
To prove this we invited six photographers to a portrait session with a twist. ‘Decoy’ is one of six experiments from The Lab, designed to shift creative thinking behind the lens. Want to be part of future The Lab experiments? Register your interest here.
