A portrait consists of a document that is mainly an image that describes animals or people through ways in which the subject can be identified. These images can mainly be seen in many formats such as the family album, social media, magazines, id cards etc. They can be commissioned by photographers, bands, and magazines due to this the image can depend on what clients want at times. The commissioner will also then decide on how useful the items can be by it depending on what they are available for.
Portraits usually consist of a set type of lighting to create an effect; something that will represent them, personality and intern will create an identity of the person without including the person.
However, the most common portrait is a headshot or a full body shot. They can also be based on costumes so to tell a narrative or change the look of a person that describes the image more than the model.
