    I'm sure I have more than this. I tend to shoot portraits both ways, although I can tell when a shot would've looked better the other way, and shoot more talls than horizontals these days.

    Horizontal portraits are storytelling. I have a street snapshot portrait as well:

    I get it. The last one I posted breaks all the rules. It's horizontal WITH a tilt, gasp! But I like it. I think it works. It wasn't tilted SOOC, but it looked... flat. Bad pun, for lack of a better word. I shot it 3 years ago too. I've come a long way since then but I still haven't changed my mind on that shot.

    Jake,
    I kind of like what you did with this. It would have been tempting to go vertical and crop out the wall.
