Want to take better portraits? Here are some top tips from photographer Jon Legge, who runs photography courses here at QUAD.
1) Ditch the flash! The small flash on compact cameras and DSLR's makes for flat & ugly lighting. Photograph your subject using natural light from a window or even a desk lamp.
2) Talk to your subject - most people feel awkward in from of a camera- make jokes, flatter them, tell them where to look, and put them at ease.

Into the Woods is the new piece of musical magic from the magic factory that is Disney. Based on the musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, the film has garnered almost universal praise and so Youth Review thought it was only right that we check it out for ourselves.
