Photography Tip: Portrait Orientation

Amateur photographers often shoot the majority of their pictures in landscape (horizontal) orientation. Professional photographers mix it up, particularly when the situation calls for it. A common instance of using portrait (vertical) orientation is when doing portraits (of humans or animals ;) ). Another one is when shooting vertical objects (e.g., trees, buildings, columns). So, don't forget to turn the camera 90 degrees once in a while. The composition takes on a completely different dynamic.
