1.    When you travel you may not have the best-suited lens on your camera so you need to improvise according to the lens you have. 

2.    Try to click when people are looking into your camera (not always necessary). 

3.    Let them do what they are doing /posing sometimes ruins the shot. 

4.    Make sure to have eyes in shape focus when taking tight portraits. 

5.    Long lens on your camera can intimidate the subject.  I prefer using my 24-70 f2.8 (in day time) or my favorite 50mm 1.8 for evening night shots. 

6.    Travel light, having lot of gear compromise your mobility. 

7.    When you want subject to pose for you don’t make request for it instantly start a conversation, build rapport then ask for pose.

8.    You have absolutely no control over lighting, so shots on broad daylight have harsh shadows and shots looks poor. Morning and evening (golden hour) gives you best lighting and warmness for the excellent portraits.

9.    Flash (either on camera or pop up) is not useful in most situations. A faster lens gives you best results. 

Happy Clicking...

Start with a good portrait lens. You want a fairly long lens. If you’re shooting with a cropped sensor DSLR a 50mm f/1.8 is a good choice. If a full frame camera, the 85mm is a classic portrait lens. A zoom also gives you nice compression for flattering portraits and it allows you to get further from your subject and make them feel more comfortable, i.e. you’re not right in their face.

A wide aperture, between f/1.4 – f5.6, will  give you a shallow depth of field so the focus will be on your subject while the background is blurred.

Composition is also important. Am big mistake new photographers make is not getting close enough. Zoom in or stand closer to fill the frame with your subject. Their face and especially their eyes are the most important. Focus on the eye nearest the camera.

Lighting is key. Invest in a speedlight that you can use on your camera’s hotshoe as well as away from the camera. This is more powerful than your built-in flash and you can control the angle to bounce light off the wall or ceiling as well as the intensity of the light. It is way more attractive than the flat lighting you get with your built-in flash.

When you’re shooting outside, use fill-in flash to help fill in shadows across the face. Your built-in flash can help, but off-camera flash is better. You get a more balanced exposure with fill-in flash because the camera will exposure for the background while the flash lights your subject’s face.

One of my favorite props is the reflector. It’s especially handy for outdoor  portraits to help bounce light onto your subject’s face. They’re fairly inexpensive to buy and you can find convenient collapsible ones, or make your own using a piece of white card board or foam core. It’s definitely worthy to have one and will make your portraits look more professional.

Other things you can do to make your portraits more interesting:

  • Frame your subject: you could use a doorway or a window. This helps give depth.
  • Fill the frame with their face. Go for an extreme closeup. I especially love this with kids.
  • Change the perspective. Instead of always taking photos of your subject at eye level, try shooting them from above.
  • Experiment with expressions. Work with your subject to try out different moods – from happy, laughing to serious or sad.
  • Have your subject look off camera, focusing on something outside of the frame. This can create some interest or mystery.
  • Try changing the way you hold your camera – Hold it at an angle to add some energy, or if you always take vertical portraits try mixing it up and take some horizontal shots
  • If you’re shooting photos of children, sometimes candids will be your best shots vs posed shots. Get the child to do something they enjoy, such as coloring or playing with a toy. This more natural setting will make them feel more relaxed.  And if you have a long lens you can stand back a ways and zoom in and your subject will likely not even notice that you’re taking photos.
