Digital Photography School is a site that’s been around for a few years, but that I only recently discovered. I’m sure going to talk more about it in coming posts, being such a great site, with so many resources and useful tips.
Today I would like to point you to an article by Darren Rowse (creator of this project) on 10 ways to take better portraits. These are:
1. Alter Your Perspective
2. Play with Eye Contact
3. Break the Rules of Composition
4. Experiment with Lighting
5. Move Your Subject Out of their Comfort Zone
6. Shoot Candidly
7. Introduce a Prop
8. Focus Upon One Body Part – Get Close Up
9. Obscure Part of your Subject
10. Take a Series of Shots
Here’s the full article.
There’s also a part two of this article, with 10 further tips on portrait photography.
Some of the tips I knew, some I didn’t and will be using in the future. Take your time browsing this site, and enjoy the great resources.
