Composing portrait images with a 50mm lens not only has to do with the normal composition rules, but also with elements of a person’s body. For example, they always say that you should focus on the eyes, and the folks at Weekly Imogen seem to agree. Their first tip has to do with specific face placement. They state that the eyes should be in the upper third area of the image because of the natural way that it draws a viewer in and lets them explore the rest of the image.
Imogen also says that using natural frames helps. The rest of the video on the perfect composition of portrait images with a 50mm lens is after the jump.
