In portrait photography, the characters are the main body of the photographer. The composition of portrait photography is to place the subject in the picture and how to highlight the composition technique of the subject. In portrait photography, simplifying other elements in the picture to highlight the composition of the characters is the basis of all portrait shooting, which is the basic common sense that photographers must master when shooting portraits. In portrait shooting, simple composition is the key to success. The common composition techniques of portrait photography are: straight line composition, triangle composition, diagonal composition and curve composition.
How to choose the appropriate composition techniques for different portraits? Before shooting, the photographer should consciously choose the appropriate composition method according to the different subjects. Then feel the mood of the main character and the surrounding environment to determine the shooting style. For example, a wise old man can be photographed with a triangular composition, but if a child is directly photographed with this composition, no matter how the picture is shot, the child's sense of stability will not be captured, and only dramatic effects will appear. The specific situation needs to be grasped flexibly.

When taking the photo, the subject's body is half squat, and the three points of human face, hand and buttocks are taken as the vertices to form a distorted triangular composition visually. Holding the knee with both hands downward and covering the knee with the palm, the incomplete feeling of the lower limb being intercepted and photographed is reduced. The lower arms are also slightly bent to avoid the rigidity of vertical lines.
