Modern Times And Family Portraits These modern times are seeing the rise of photography but on a whole new level. It seems everyone has a camera with them at all times. All we need to do is download this or that and we have a camera that can use filters, add borders and upload all over the world within seconds. There is a danger that this could become considered photography when it is only picture taking. A true family portrait is of value beyond measure. A true family portrait is when the family has spent real time together to get the photograph that will carry them into the future via them being visible in the past. A true family portrait is taken in a place where the family and the landscape are in perfect tune, with the perfect light and the perfect time. True family portrait photography is timeless, tactile and can carry the weight of the generations present, and the generations to come.
