  2. Good article, a lot of good points that most people overlook .every point is important and very essential for portrait manufacturing.

  3. Just to share my tip – a good zoom will really improve the quality of any portrait – the “Mugshots” are normally taken from way to close to the subject and leaves them feeling awkward which will shoe in the image you capture.
