    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 6: Shooting from the wrong height

    Professional Photographer to the Rescue: child photography without the complication

    The definition of ‘wrong height’ varies depending upon the subject and the context of the image, but it can help you produce better results if you shoot at your subject’s eye-level.

    With children this may mean kneeling down or even lying with your elbows on the floor.

    Conversely, if you want to take a quick shot that emphasises how small they are, then shoot from above.

    Many portrait photographers advise against shooting from below your subjects eye level, because it can lead to double chins and up-nostril views.

    Traditionally, women and children were always shot from slightly above  with them looking up to emphasise their eyes and make them look more appealing, but these guidelines are less relevant today.

    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 1: Shooting wide
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 2: Eyes not sharp
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 3: Too much depth of field
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 4: Unusual headwear
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 5: Depth of field to shallow
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 6: Shooting from the wrong height
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 7: Harsh shadows
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 8: Redeye
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 9: Too much detail
    Portrait Photography Mistake No. 10: Too far away
