16 Great Examples of Portraits with Fields

When looking for a place to take portraits, one of the things a photographer needs to worry about is the way the background will make the subject look. You want to avoid anything that will distract from the main focus, while at the same time using a background that has some texture to keep it intriguing. That is where fields come in; they have enough texture to keep the picture interesting, but not enough to crowd out your point of interest, and in some instances will create a wide open spaces feel. Here are a few great examples of photographers who used a field as their portrait background.

Great post. You chose some really wonderful examples to illustrate your commentary. Well done. I especially love the “strobist” look on some of these portraits.
