Some good examples of portraits in photography

There are many ways to take a good portrait photograph; profile shots, head on, well cropped, black and white, colour, in a studio or outside. The following images show some of these styles. I hope that some of these excellent  portrait shots that I’ve chosen, might  inspire you the next time you have your camera out.

Many thanks to all those people from the creative commons on Flickr whose images I have used here.
