10:45 Portrait Photography
Attach the 50mm lens if you have one in your bag.
A prime lens is the one with a fixed focal length which is what your 50mm lens is. Our 50mm lenses are roughly the way the human eye sees the world. Good for just about any type of photography.
You cannot zoom a 50mm lens. It is fixed! So you must walk closer if you want to get a full frame shot.
Your 50mm lens is easy to get a shallow depth of field as the f/stop goes all the way down to f1.8.
Your 18-55mm lens is called a Standard lens. It does not have a fixed focal length. You can adjust.
Composition of a Portrait
To get a proper Portrait Shot, you must frame the head of your subject to fill the frame. Some shoulders are OK but a full body or upper torso shot is not really a portrait.
- Use a solid or contrasting background.
- Make sure the face is well exposed
- Bokeh – soft or blurry background (Working in Aperture Priority or Manual Mode with small f/stop)
- Talk with your subject about what you want to capture / emotion / feeling
- Remember Rule of Thirds
- Props can be ok, just not to distract
- Try some interesting poses or angles
- Help your subject relax
To get a good shot you are going to need some proper lighting. There are many lighting strategies and whole careers are made out of being a lighting expert. Today we’ll meet with Jesse in the media lab to discuss lighting and review some common set ups.
- Key Light
- Fill Light
- Back Light / Rim Light
