If your complaining about the unpleasing shadowing then the issue is that they used a single direct flash. If he/she had used a bounce flash and/or a second strategically placed remote flash you wouldn't have had that issue.

It looks like the flash is coming from the right side of the frame. Does he hold his camera with his right hand under the camera in portrait orientation?

Agreed...

Portrait-orientation with on-board flash. :(

nooo certainly incorrect usage of flash.

Shot in portrait mode a flash bracket with external flash, better angle, remote flash, or some heavy duty diffusion would have prevented this. Lots of ways to approach the problem.

has no-one noticed the framing isn't exactly correct for portraiture? ;)

I assumed they're cropped to hide the subject.

lmfao, that has got to be one of the worst answer...sorry worst answer I have seen so far, let alone spelling :lol:

Yup, like all of them apart from the one I am quoting from, it is direct flash to the subject that causes shadows

Actually bad censor might work here... since the image is horribly cropped/censored as a portrait :) :lol:

But then the shadow would be more on the right, not the left. The shadow is from a light source slightly camera right.

I guess you could hold the camera backwards and get that but that would be awfully uncomfortable.

Good call. There must have been a second light source like a lamp or something.

Caused from using flash and standing so close to the background.
