In most portrait photos, the subject's eyes look directly into the camera. Have your subject express a variety of emotions to capture a unique photograph. You could also try to have the people in the picture look at something in the frame.
When working around subjects that are moving a lot or are totally in action, you need to focus on capturing the moments by keeping your trigger down. These kinds of moments can not be recreated and there are no do-overs. Keep your eye on the areas at all times and keep shooting.
Make sure the background you choose complements the subject of the photo. If you take a photo of a model against a busy background, the viewer's attention is going to be drawn to the background rather than the clothes. As a general rule, simple backgrounds with colors that contrast with those of the subject are ideal.
