Tips for successful portrait photography 

 

 1.  Take the photo during the day using natural light.

      I take my portrait photos with the subject sitting or standing indoors next

      to a window.

2.   Avoid using a flash espescially direct front on flash.

3.   If you have a zoom lens, set it to 50mm.

4.   Avoid fake smiles. I usually ask the subject not to smile but just to look

      calm and relaxed.

      If you follow these tips then you should have a great portrait

      photograph.
