Seems like a pretty comprehensive list. I really enjoy that it goes into detail with the ways each element effects the photograph - I haven't been shooting for very long and a lot of these factors would have never occurred to me

This is a nice thread. I just started doing photography and my favourite type of photography is portrait. So this thread is really helpful. Although I have found some more tips about portrait photography .

My main suggestion is that natural portraits are generally better than posed ones. By natural I mean an image of the subject doing whatever he or she normally does without know when the shutter will fire.
