12 Tips for Taking Stunning Portraits

Taking Perfect Portraits

People love to see flattering photos of themselves, but not every photographer has the skill set to capture a striking portrait. These 12 tips cover everything from lighting to lenses, so everyone who steps in front of your camera will end up looking their best.

Use natural light

When photographing portraits inside, try shooting near a large window. The diffused natural light will minimize harsh shadows and will create a more flattering image (as long as the sun isn’t shining directly in the window). Ask your subject to turn toward the light, so their face isn’t in shadow. Also remember to turn off any indoor lights, which can give your image a yellow cast.
