Choosing the Best Portrait Setting

Family Portrait,Childrens Portraits,Wedding Portraits, Pets

The Setting for your portrait will be determined by the style or mood of the painting.

A conservative portrait will require backdrops that are usually darker or quieter in colours and if in the home more traditional furnishings.

A lighter mood type portrait will be more colourful in backdrops. Colours and lighting play a big part setting the mood of a portrait. Furnishing props are important as well.


Some ideas for settings...

Energetic moods: choose vibrant colours which can be stronger ex reds, hot pinks, electric blues

Conservative moods: choose darker colours ex browns or deep blues, dark reds etc

Dreamy or happy moods: These can be light pastel pinks,blues,greens,yellows.
If a dreamy pose then this might have a darker backdrop as the subject is more internalising their world and it is private.

Leadership qualities in a portrait: The expression of the subjects face will show this but strong reds will also help to set the mood. Which leads to the angle the subject is painted from

Portrait Angles

We have discussed how colours, lighting, furnishings play a part in setting the scene but the ANGLE OF THE PORTRAIT is equally important. Taking the photo from different angles - front on, sideways, from different angles lends itself to the interpretation of the portrait. Example a portrait of a leader will be photographed or pose from an angle where we are looking up to that person. An angle where we are looking down of children at play shows we are look down into their world. Click this for
