I also liked how she explained how portraiture has changed over the years because it gives me a solid foundation to build my work on. She also talks about the portraiture in paintings rather than photography. This gave me a different look on portraiture. I feel like you can manipulate and change portraiture more with a painting than in a photograph. You can't change how someone's actual body parts look or are in a photograph but in a painting you can use your imagination and make the persons body look how ever you want. This concept has made me think more about this and how important it is to capture a good image. I love the human body and the different forms that our body can make. I love that in photography( without photoshop) , you get what you get when you take a photograph. Thats why it is so important to have perfect lighting and know what is inside the frame when snapping your image. This reading got me really excited for this assignment and it gave a lot of useful information!
