Once you’ve learned how to take good portraits, you may want to play it up a bit to add personality and a storytelling aspect to your photos. It’s advisable to get on your subject’s level, especially if they’re small children and you’re shooting family portrait sessions. Seeing your subjects eye to eye is the best way to give your images a more personal feel. Consider moving in close and shooting from a different angle if you wish to focus on other features, such as the lips, ears, and nose. A seemingly silly but effective technique of achieving a more realistic perspective of your subject is using focal lengths of 50mm (like a nifty fifty lens) and zooming with your feet (than with your lens) until the subject’s face fills the frame. This technique is used by professional photographers in order for facial elements to look flattering.
