What is the essence of Portrait Photography? Maybe it is a memory of a unique moment in time, maybe it is capturing the inner & outer working and "beauty" of your subject(s).
Look at the work of the late Arnold Newman, capturing some of the centuries greatest figures in their everyday element making it his signature style. Never forgetting "a good portrait had first to be a good photograph"
Maybe the essence of a good portrait is ensuring that we capture the everyday mundane making sure there is a story being told to every one who views that image each time it is viewed.
Keep it simple, get complicated, spend hrs, spend 3 minutes on the shoot, but the essence of the image, of that setting, of the person, of the story should be told in the capture.
Mix it up, come of with novel ideas, recreate already tried and trusted styles, which ever you do, make it your own.
