Time Savor Portraits

A photograph stops time. A portrait savors it.

How to choose a photograph for your portrait

Not all photographs make good portraits. 

 Look over these tips before choosing a photograph to send to the artist:  

1.  Give the artist photos to choose from.  This will allow freedom for the artist to do what she thinks will look the best, and will ultimately give you a better finished product. 

2.  3/4 views and profiles make interesting portraits. Don't count out a photo just because it isn't straight on.

3. Cameras can sometimes distort an image and make a face look out of proportion.  Photos like these do not make good images for portraits.
