    Default Little smile of my cousin



    Just seeking opinion in one area which is the framing of this portrait. No cropping done here and this was shot with 85mm 1.8 using natural light.

    Shld I pursue a horizontal framing (16:9) positioning her at the side? Or is this framing alright, needs a tighter crop or wider view?

    Thanks in advance

    My take on this is that its a nice pic. It does bring out the smile in her. Can zoom in on her face more (shoulders are a distractor). Noticed that her face is a little dark on her left. A little bit of light on that side will be good..perhaps by bouncing light off a wall or something.

    ok so u meant a tighter crop by cropping off the bottom yes?

    the light was meant to be this way using the natural light as side lighting

    okay!~ yup, only the eyes are in focus, was shooting at 1.8 rather up close so the dof change is quite sensitive. I think yes if you interprete the title's way, its considered oof! haha
