A portrait is a much broader term — essentially any image where the subject is aware she’s being photographed (even if she’s not looking at the camera).
The Arts & Apples Festival, hosted by the Paint Creek Center for the Arts is one of the best art fairs I’ve ever seen. Artists from all disciplines (and from all over the country) show off some really incredible work — photography, sculpture, painting, wood working, clothing and more. As a photographer, I was blown away by the level of work.
