Ten Top Tips for Competition Portraits - No 1

Starting today we will be posting a series of tips for portraiture in competitions. As Chief Steward of the Fremantle International Portrait Prize I am in the fortunate position of reviewing thousands of images without actually judging.
What I do get to see is how the judges actually judge. What they like and what doesn't appeal.

Portraits taken while people are travelling are always popular with the photographer. But so many are passive. To appeal to the judge the subject needs to be actively engaged. Through the eyes, through body language.
