Two Portraits - Two Portrait Tips
Candid Portrait Tip: Two Portraits - Two Focus Techniques
The scene is similar in these two photos. However the subject being focused on varies, using two vary different techniques.
In the first instance, I used a shallow depth of field to separate the man in the foreground from the man in the background, making the man in the foreground stand out.
In the second I used patience, waiting until the person closest to me turned his head and the subject facing me began to smile, thus drawing interest to the man in the background.
