A Post By: Darren Rowse How do you take Portraits that have the ‘Wow’ factor? Today and tomorrow I want to talk about taking Portraits that are a little out of the box. You see it’s all very well and good to have a portrait that follows all the rules – but it hit me as I was surfing on Flickr today that often the most striking portraits are those that break all the rules. I want to look at some ways to break out of the mold and take striking portraits by breaking (or at least bending) the rules and adding a little randomness into your portrait photography. I’ll share ten of these tips today and a further ten tomorrow (update: you can see the 2nd part here).

Clarification: It's not the Fibonacci Ratio. It's the Golden Ratio (aka phi)- The Fibonacci sequence can be used to approximate the golden ratio, as each successive pair of numbers' ratio gets closer and closer to phi. This is the beauty of nature- Fibonacci numbers are present everywere in nature (count the chunks of pineapple in a "row"), as is phi (bend your index finger, measure from knuckle 1 to knuckle 2, and knuckle 2 to knuckle 3, divide.) But I digress, the point was that it's not the Fibonacci Ratio.
Americana 2 | The DuckDuck Collective Blog A year ago, when DuckDuck collective first came together, we posted a blog entitled “Americana”. This was the first time that the three of us had ever combined our imagery together into a single project. “Americana 2″ is a look into some of the more personal images and portraits we have taken over the last year as a team. It has been a beautiful ride and we are so glad so many of you have enjoyed it with us. About DuckDuck: Hello, we’re John, Ally, and Matt — a collective of photographers and filmmakers based out of Lynchburg, VA.
