Quick Tip #2: Get Down on your Knees!

When you're shooting a portrait, get down on your knees, and shoot from below. Your subject will look taller and more majestic! Avoid shooting from the top--you will shrink your subject. Avoid shooting from eye level--that's the perspective we see every day, so it's boring. 

(The only exception to this is selfies--shoot from the top for selfies, because you are so close to the subject--you will end up with a double chin if you shoot from the bottom 🤣)
