They must follow you to any angle of viewing, so they must be right down the lens. Do that and you have a winner!
These are the things a professional knows and an amateur must learn if they wish to create photographic images instead of snapshots. Lighting is important. Depth of field is important. Focus is important. But, remember to focus on the eyes and make a connection.

To use a point & shoot, I tried last night. Lots of noise, and I missed the weight and the manual zoom. New skills are always good and I was able to hone my anticipation mode, but I do miss the quality.
I will be a good boy and follow the new guidelines. Just really glad I won't be responsible for enforcing the new rules. I think they will go nuts trying.
