Descriptions:

Bust - Choose profile view, full face view, or 3/4 view. Focuses on subject's head and top of shoulders with little background, emphasizing subject's facial expression.

  • Profile View - Depicts face's physical form from a side view angle.
  • Full Face View - Depicts full face describing every detail, sometimes slightly angled.
  • 3/4 View - Mid-way between profile view and full face view.

Half Length - Upper body from waist up, with hands and some supporting background, focusing on facial expression combined with personal hand gesture characteristics.
Full Length - Full body, including background giving some contextual significance to portrait. (Full length portraits can include items in background that are significant to the subject, i.e. a piano, tricycle, fishing items, musical instrument.)
