A close up of one of these cute guys. There really little - to eyeball this one, I had the camera only 40-50cm from the ground. If you look at the full res image, you can see me in the reflections on his eye 8-).

I couldn't find another page worth linking to for more information. That's a bit sad.
I was uploading the shots attached, and confirming the technical terms of the orientation of the head in portraits to put in the keywords.

So the standard terms are:

  1. "Full face" for straight on (as in the image above)
  2. "3/4", where the head is turned slightly away
  3. "Profile", where the the head is shot side on (as in the image on the right)

This site shows it well: http://portrait-photographer.blogspot.com.au/2009/04/views-of-face.html
