Taking a photograph of a person is an easy task. Dress them up in fancy clothes, have them pose against a striking background, and there you have it: A nice portrait worthy of a spot in someone's online profile. The real challenge in portraiture is being able to peel away these superficial layer and allow someone to expose their truest self in front of the camera.
