Portrait Tip #2

02nd September 2010

Portraits are one the most common type of photographs. We’d like to share some tips for taking better people pictures.

Direction of the Light

Shooting people outdoors offers a wide variety of lighting. Observe and take advantage of the direction from which it is falling on your subject.

For this shot, we turned the subject slightly so that the light is coming from the side. By doing this, we have added a more “rounded” and fuller look to the facial features.
