EDITOR’S NOTE: This is part of a new series we’re offering only on the blog called TWIP Quick Tips. They’re short, and hopefully useful tidbits designed to make your images better. They are out of necessity not complete how-to articles. Please keep that in mind when commenting. Thanks.
If you take pictures of people, you might hear someone say – “That’s not my good side.” Actually, most people don’t know which is their good side. Here’s a tip to help you decide.
If one eye is bigger or more circular in appearance, that eye is most often on the person’s good side. Also, if a person curls their lip when they smile, the side of the mouth where the lip curls is usually their good side. And lastly, since most people have faces that are larger on one side than the other, the larger side tends to be the best.
This is a general guideline, not a rule. Play with it and see what kind of results you get.
