“A good photo is one that you look at for more than a second” here is the opinion of the master Henri Cartier Bresson.

Even the right equipment and appropriate backgrounds in his study help to achieve this goal.

A very popular kind of portrait is “family portrait”, made not only in the studio but also on location, surrounded by nature or in your own back yard. There are almost always children, often newborns and the challenging task of the photographer is to make this unique portrait a memory of the family… exciting stages of individual life or of family life to make indelible…
