Avoid Rocking and Rotating Chairs

SUMMARY: Keep your digital portrait photography subjects from fidgeting in a moving chair.

Avoid placing your digital portrait photography subject in a rocking or rotating chair. This encourages many people to fidget, yet you need your subject to stay as still as possible. Keeping still minimizes possible blur in the resulting photo. Plus, it helps ensure that the subject's face and eyes are completely in focus, especially with increased apertures that reduce the depth-of-field.
