Portrait shooting

15 important points of portrait shooting

  1. Lens
  2. The best lens for portrait photography is a single focus lens. It’s easy to blur the background.
    135mm F2 or 24mm F1.4 or 85mm F1.8

  3. Lighting
  4. Soft light is best. Equipment has soft boxes, umbrellas, ring lights and split lights.

  5. Camera setting
  6. Keep the aperture open to basic. Keep the shutter speed at which the camera can not be shaken when taking a picture with the camera. Increase the sensitivity as the ISO sensitivity gets darker. If it is bright, the sensitivity will be lowered in order to shade the subject.

  7. Aware of the light around the shooting location
  8. For example, the light of a vending machine at night acts as the light of a soft box.

  9. Concept of sun and utilization of sunlight
  10. Keep sunlight behind the subject.

  11. Keep the background simple
  12. Do not make the background completely unrelated to the subject. Make your subject stand out by blurring the background with a single focus lens.
