The Best Portrait Photos From 2020 And The Importance Of Portrait Photography

Portrait photos look stunning because of the sharp features of the model in front of a hazy background. But it takes a lot of skill and experience to take the perfect portrait shot. Sure, some of the latest smartphones come with a portrait-shot feature in their cameras, but you still need to get the angles and lighting right. A good portrait is a combination of various things: lighting, location, creativity, and many more things. How does each of these factors play a role in portrait photography? Here are some of the best portrait shots of 2020 created by the amazing artists from our LOOKSLIKEFILM community.

Why is portrait photography important?

Is it compulsory to learn portrait photography to become a photographer? No. Is it essential to learn portrait photography to become a photographer? Yes. Portrait photography gives you a vast opportunity to capture emotions. Eyes speak a thousand words. And that’s one of the most important aspects of portrait photography. Your photo will speak a thousand words without you writing a paragraph about it.

Yes, there are tons of other photography genres that you can explore, but don’t miss out on portraits. You can use its skill in wildlife photography and abstract photography because both involve understanding how light and background can make your photo look better. Moreover, portrait shots establish a connection between the photographer and the viewer. It’s the magic of how different viewers interpret your portrait photos that make this photography genre so essential to grasp.

Artists of the Year 2020 – Portrait Photos

The Artists of the year articles are a LOOKSLIKEFILM tradition for more than four years now. It is a series where we feature the work of the best photographers from our Facebook community. Their work received a lot of attention in our group and encouraged many of the 55.000 community members to show their love for the photo by giving it a ‘like.’

A great achievement

These images you see here and in our other Artists of the Year blog posts (the wedding portraits one for example), made it into the famous #LLF1000CLUB. It simply means that a photographer’s photo received at least one thousand Facebook likes in our group. It is not that easy to get those numbers, so we are happy to share this achievement by showcasing these stunning images from different photography fields in our series here.
