- The constructionist approach
- Candid approach
- Environmental approach
- Creative approach

In the candid approach the portrait photograph is taken without the knowledge of the subject. Therefore it is more natural. In the environmental approach the photographer creates a background for the portrait. For example the favorite leader on the subject may be shown in the background.
