Foundations of Portrait Composition Part I: Framing Your Model

It doesn’t matter whether you’re taking your pictures with an expensive camera or an old phone. In portraits, the same rule of composition will always apply.

Closed Eyes in Group Photos? The Editor Will Help You Fix Them

Group photos are the sort of thing that can seem easy at first. You round people up into one place, you say “cheese!”, and you shoot ten pictures.
