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.
Good Better Best
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.
