Setting a Scene for a Portrait

Setting a scene for a portrait is a nice way to add to the special feeling and the connection to the subject's life or interests. Some portraits are set in intimate surroundings to create a secret spot or a restful feel; others are set in a more public space, or outdoors if it suits the subject. You are the ultimate judge of what's appropriate when it comes to setting, but don't hesitate to try a setting that is unusual.
