Portraits begin as nature photographs,
primarily taken in areas that are home
to exotic plants and wildlife. Pictures
destined to become Jungle Portraits
are often selected (on occasion, even
out-of-focus images are employed) to
show some outstanding characteristic
of the subject, such as unusual or interesting
colors, shapes, behavior, or beauty.
photographs are refined by incorporating
the distinctive Jungle Portrait texture
and, in some, inherent, but obscure

Page and compare it to the excerpted
portion of that photo, which is reproduced
as it will appear as a Jungle Portrait.
