    Excellent post. I mainly do landscapes and was considering getting back into portrait photography. This has been a really useful refresher for me.

    Very informative piece which has made me think about things I hadn't before such as a reflector. Looking to try and incorporate some of your tips whilst taking portraits as I need to get my technique up to scratch as may be asked to take pictures for my wife's Brownies troop.
    Thank you very much

    I raise your 3 years to 11! Even now I seem to not notice backgrounds as I'm so concentrated on the subject!
