A basic guideline for male portrait photography

Have good lighting for your portrait photography

Having good lighting will help your camera to easily focus on the subject. When you have good lighting, it is easier to capture the facial features of your subject.

Prepare ideas before shooting

Have different ideas on how to pose your model before shooting. Think ahead of the type of theme you would like to have for your shoot and the different things you will need to do so. Having ideas before the shoot will help you to make your portrait photography easier.

Use clothes without patterns

When you do portrait photography you want the person to be the subject of attention; when the person you photograph is wearing clothing with different patterns it tends to be distracting.
