Thanks to PetaPixel, I stumbled over a short, but highly insightful and funny video. In it, a Korean girl demonstrates the importance of camera angle for portraits in 14 seconds. Whether a person is photographed from above or below can make a huge difference. A difference of roughly 10 to 30 kilos. 😉
For photographers aiming at taking better portrait pictures, the following video tutorial should be even more precious. Peter Hurley describes how one’s portraits may be radically ameliorated by paying more attention to the jawline and putting it in the limelight.
