Portrait photography is understood to be of good quality and not only does it capture a person's physical look on film, but will also show a characteristic in the manner that is pleasant to the eye, attractive and a unique mannerism of the subject. A very well done portrait will at least contain one element that reveals what the subject's personality and attitude or any other traits or features that is natural to the person.
