*What do we mean by a"Summer Portrait Photo?" *

Wikipedia describes Portrait Photography or Portraiture as a photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photograph is usually the person's face, although the entire body and the background may be included.

However, we are going to be a bit more flexible with the summer portrait photo submissions we receive. We will accept candid shots, snapshots, street shots, as long as the photograph is of a person or a group of individuals. In addition to there being people in your shot, we also require the photograph to express or give the impression of or  feeling "summer."  So while you are capturing the essence and feeling of the people in the photo, you are also capturing the essence of summer..."Summer Portrait" is essentially a photo where the rules of portrait photography or portraiture apply but in a "summer" setting/scene ((beach, sunny day, green grass, flowers, ocean, warmth, light, joy, long day short night etc.) or any other creative way the photographer would like to express "summer" in the portrait they choose to submit.

Hope this helps! Happy Shooting!
