Great tips thanks!
Another question.... What can I do about blinking. I have a bad habit of having to take 20 pictures before I can get one good one without my eyes closed of half closed from blinking.
I've tried staring off past where I'm looking or force my eyes to stay open but then it seems like they are too wide open and shows I'm forcing them to be like that.
What can I do to make it look more natural or just to stop the blinking during pictures all together?
