Chen, to this question, I have asked at least two pro photographers.Sorry, i very noob..what's the difference between snap shot and protrait? What do you consider snap shot? and what do you consider protrait?
The lighting was not ideal. The face is in the shadow. The background is a little too cluttered. The brown colour of the shed behind and the skin tone is close and does not do good to isolate the subject especially it is at where the face is.
radedward, i totally agree with you Thanks for the motivation!The difference between a snapshot and a portrait is intent.
A picture can fail in its technical aspects but can be a success if it fulfills the creator's intent.
As for the picture itself, it's interesting but would make more sense as part of a collection. This is not a picture that can stand alone.
