What are important factors to consider when shooting a portrait?
The most important factors in shooting portrait photos is to focus on the face, as well as using proper lighting techniques. You also have to make your subject comfortable and to capture some sense of emotion in the photograph.
What is the difference between broad and short lighting?
Broad lighting is when the main light is on the side of the face that is facing the camera, while short lighting places the main light on the side of the face that is away from the camera.

The fill light makes shadows less dark by adding light to them.

This picture is my favorite picture because of Sean’s expression, as well as the contrast of light (from this face) to the shadowing.
