Picturesque Portraits Part 2

Front View of the Face

The front view of the face is the most
common in portraiture. It's benefit
is that it is easy to pose, and it is ususally
how we look at those we talk to.
The drawback is that it tends to
flatten the face, and also sometimes
results in a 'mug shot' look.

Photos are already 2-dimensional,
and a front view of the face can add
to that instead of making the photo 3D.
Front views have their place, and if
your subject ends up liking the front
view in a particular shot, congratulations
on making them really happy!!!
