Styles of Portraits According to Length


The simplest way to define a portrait is it's an image that portrays a person. It's very simple as that, giving a huge room for flexibility and experiments. You can take a portrait that focuses simply on one's outfit, or one's pose, even just his facial features.

Here we've listed some of the most commonly used portrait lengths as your guide and refresher in the art of portrait photography, thanks to these Lomographs.
