Lighting faces

* The soft light you get on overcast days is especially good for photographing people, as it delivers the best skin tones
* Side or ‘cross’ lighting is more interesting because it gives depth and form to your portrait sitter
* Keep backgrounds and other distractions to the minimum so that the viewer can concentrate on the face
* In this picture, soft light from a window lights the faces of the girls from the side, while a zoomed-in setting throws the foreground face out of focus.
