The Ideal Photos for the Best Portrait
It will be my pleasure to draw the best and most compelling portrait that I am able, from ANY available image you have
— even that tattered, faded, black and white, newspaper-clipping from Grandma's hope chest in the attic —
BUT there is no denying that the better the photos, the easier it is to create a beautiful portrait.
If you are gathering existing photos or taking new ones, consider the following:
5 Tips for Gathering or Taking the Most Useful Photos for a Portrait
1. Choose the Angle of the building that is most beautiful or nostalgic to you or the ones who will own the portrait.
2. Take up-close photos, that show the whole building, but also show the details (even of what is hiding behind trees and such).
3. Take photos from the same angle but from farther back to show the whole profile in the context of its surroundings.
4. Take photos from a low perspective, looking up at the building. The upward angle adds a grander, more atmospheric look to any building.
5. Don't hesitate to send lots of photos! Every one may contribute an important perspective or detail.
