3/4 View of the Face


The 3/4 view of the face is the most
flattering because it portrays the
proper depth and
character of the subject.
The only drawback is that you need
to be attentive to the details:


-Keep the nose from breaking the
outline of the face
-Show only one ear
-Show a little skin at the
corner of the far eye.




The most crucial element of portraiture
is keepin the eyes in sharp focus.
Eyes are the windows to the soul.

Catchlights:
Are the reflection of the light source
in the subjects' eyes. They add
sparkle, life and vibrancy to
the subject, and without
catchlights people look
lifless.
