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.
