You can move the focus box to where you want the face to be in the frame before you even raise the camera. If I’m shooting people I will move the the focus box to the top third of the frame for both vertical and horizontal orientations - the camera can be set to remember where you set the point for each orientation so that you don’t have keep moving it every time you flip your camera around. It can speed things up a bit - your focus box will always be in the ballpark to start.

Very true. That is what I have been doing!

In your original post you mention focusing on the face and moving the camera to move the face to the top third of the frame, suggesting the focus box was in the center. I’m talking about moving the focus box so it’s already at the top third so you don’t have change the camera position after focusing.
