Taking Pictures of People

There are a number of things you can do when photographing people to improve your shot.

  • Put them in front of a nice background. If you have a telephone pole sticking out of their head – that’s not good.
  • Test shots with and without a flash. You may get better shots with a flash. It depends on the situation.
  • Mid-day shots outside usually don’t turn out very well – either use the flash or get into the shade. You can also try making a reflector to fill in the harsh shadows if you have to shoot in direct sunlight.
  • Don’t try to shoot from too far away – you want the most amount of pixels available.
  • Use the Portrait mode on your camera when possible. It’s usually the icon with a head.
