Wednesday Photography Tips: PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

TIPS FOR AWESOME PORTRAITS

Portrait photography is the most popular genre. Here are a few tips that improve your photos.

1- Bounce the shoulders, i.e. one shoulder higher than the other. This pose creates a friendly composition.

2- Broad shoulders are not too pleasing. A 2/3 turn on shoulders makes the model slimmer. Leave some room around the model.

3- Don’t turn the shoulders a lot; it creates neck getting stretched—just a small amount of turn.

4- Being in front of the camera makes people uneasy Ask models to drop their shoulders, creating a more relaxing image.

Posing for Portrait: OPEN THE MOUTH

Should the Mouth be Opened or Closed?

Whether we smile with our mouths open or closed is something we don’t often stop thinking about. But the mouth has a significant impact (like the eyes) in portrait poses, in part because viewers will observe a lot about the portrait from body language cues. And that body language includes the position of the mouth, like smiling.

In recent years it has become a trend to emphasize a strong jawline in photographs. Jawlines make a face appear slimmer and add a nice contrast to it.
Try this little trick for yourself:
Stand in front of a mirror and look at your jawline while your mouth is closed. Then open your mouth slightly and look at the jawline again. Can you see the difference? This is what I am talking about!

I show you the difference that the open mouth creates in the photos below:

Our next Portrait Photography Workshop Starts on May 12, 2022. It is a three-part class covering Natural Light Portrait, Fill-flash techniques and a field trip with professional models.

Wednesday Photography Tips: LENS FOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY TIP

What is the best lens for Portrait Photography?

It is a general question among portrait photographers. Although there is no simple answer, I explain a few tips for selecting a perfect lens.

Suitable Lenses for Portrait Photography

A standard lens or a short telephoto is the best choice for the focal length. So, any focal length greater than 50mm will do the job. My favourite focal length for portraiture is 85mm to 135mm (in Full-frame cameras).

Aperture

On the other note, a lens with a larger aperture (f1.8 to f2.8) is the optimum lens. It provides greater control over the Depth of Fields to create a soft and creamy background.

Perfect Lenses for Portrait Photography

A larger Aperture allows you to control the depth of fields

Lastly, I try to avoid wide-angle lenses for portraits unless I create unique images, like the picture below.
