The DON’Ts of portrait photography:

  • When photographing a group of people, don’t leave the positioning up to them! Try to position them in a way that shows they like each other.
  • Don’t forget to make them smile!
  • Be the stylist. Don’t let the subjects of your portrait wear drab or unflattering garments.
  • Location, location, location. Don’t just take the photograph anywhere. Think about the setting and choose somewhere that contributes to the mood of the picture.
