Creative portrait photography is all about letting our collective (the subject and the photographer) imagination roam as we shoot. The idea is to use all tools at our disposal – lighting, flashes, backgrounds, props, dress, make-up – to come up with a large-than-life portrait, that nevertheless still hinges on reality. Or not! You can go nuts if you like. the whole point is to have fun and create art, which is, after all, no more, no less, than what is in the eye of the beholder.
