Focusing, Making The Right Thing Sharp

In the majority of portraiture, the subject's eyes are the main focus of the shot, and it's therefore important to ensure they are sharp, especially when using a wide aperture. By default, your camera's autofocus system will usually focus on whatever is in the centre of the frame, or closest to the camera. As a result, when your subject is positioned off-centre or behind foreground elements, you will end up with a blurred subject if you rely on the default focus settings.
