    In your opinion, what mainly constitute a bad portrait?
    I know bad or good often can be subjective, but just let me know your opinion.

    When your subject dislikes it intensely.
    Ladies, e.g. don't like their wrinkles 2
    show, so use soft focus lens. Consider
    various angles 2 shoot - from below 2
    avoid double chin look.

    In the old days, those studio portrait
    shots were always touched up by hand
    - now u can use Photoshop.

    So, pre-shoot as well as the post-shoot
    process r s important. U may think u have
    taken a great shot but does your subject
    think the same !!

    Happy shooting,

    Michael

    Unnatural or awkward pose/expression.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.
