What makes a great portrait?

I prefer to shoot landscapes instead of people but I found Joerg Colberg’s blog entry, “What makes a great portrait?” to be an interesting read. Instead of giving us an opinion, Colberg asked fine art and commercial photographers, curators, editors and others to explain what makes a great portrait. A lot of people submitted photos with explanations that are really quite interesting.

If you own a DSLR then sooner or later you’re going to get asked to shoot a portrait. This article may give you some handy tips.
