Portrait Photography Tip of the Day

A Slight Head Tilt Forward Yields Gold!

I remember shooting the image before this one. It was really nice, however her neck/head was straight up. I asked her to tilt her head forward a bit, which created a new diagonal, and took the image to a new level. It wouldn’t work if I was shooting from the front, but shooting from the side it’s golden.
