For centuries advances in photographic equipment and techniques have developed, and gave photographers the ability to capture images with shorter exposure times and the making of portraits outside the studio. There are many different techniques for portrait photography. Often it is desirable to capture the subject’s eyes and face in sharp focus while allowing other less important elements to be rendered in a soft focus. When photographing people a photographer needs to find out for him/herself how to make a subject or model comfortable in front of the camera since people come in all shapes and sizes, and they need to be profoundly interconnected with photographer. This issue features portraits from global photographers in all stages of their careers. These portraits remind us that, it is often the quiet, unfiltered gaze of a fellow human being that makes for the most intense, and the most revelatory, of all pictures. Photography is an art and sometimes there are rules which you can brake to get your best results.
