    There is at least one way to take a portrait straight on though and never see two ears.... It's called a Nikon 10.5mm F/2.8 Fisheye. Personally, I get a kick out of taking a photo like that and then showing the subject.

    First test run with the new camera. To make it easy, I started with something that wasn't moving. It's still a handheld shot though.

    Thanks. I'll have to remember that about the ears. My wife and kids said it looked like a mug shot also.



    I thought this one was at to much of an angle.

    It's kind of a blank stare. I think this guy needs some more dramatic lighting.

    @Tomcat: I think the front-on pose would work if you cut down the lighting to be much more dramatic, such that perhaps only one side of the face was illuminated (probably the other half a wee bit, lighting not from directly to the side), making sure that the subject's eyes weren't visible through the glasses, and that the background was essentially black.....just my opinion though
