    Whether it’s a Selfie or an “Otherie,” we love a portrait, don’t we.

    *The Art of Portrait Photography*
    *Humans have been creating likenesses of each other for thousands of years,
    but with the introduction of photography, a new language developed for
    capturing the human image. Photography created opportunities for not just
    for biography and documentation, but also depth, empathy, and
    experimentation. Many portrait photographers today elevate their work from
    mere photo to art, communicating ideas and capturing the human subject with
    dignity, all while exploring the meaning and potential of portraiture.*

    Another very good video, Tim. A suggestion for additional explorations
    might be to expand on why you like and don’t like some photographs.
    Critiques perhaps.
    And, of course, remember to smile now and then.
