Photography Tip: Framing in Portraiture

Portrait Tutorial

Haje Jan Kamps, a DeviantArt member, wrote a good tutorial on “framing in portraiture”

“I spend a lot of time commenting on stuff on DA. One of my pet peeves is bad framing in portraiture. Not bad because it is different from the way I would have done it, but bad because some people don’t even think about framing or cropping. Lighting, the model, and other technical stuff is easy enough: Any monkey and his dog manages to set up a scene and point a camera at it. The trick is to somehow lure some context out of a photograph. This can be done in many different ways, but framing and/or cropping is the easist way to do it, in my opinion.”
