Portrait Photography tips for Beginners
Think application before taking the portrait
What is your photo going to be used for? While many of our photos are just used generally for looking at, some photos would be better either vertical or horizontal if it is going to be used for a specific purpose. For example, if you re taking a portrait for someone s Facebook profile, you can get a much larger picture by shooting it in vertical orientation (up and down). If you re shooting for a wedding announcement, it s probably better to shoot horizontal so there is enough room for text on the side of the couple.
