If you have any question about the course then you can find it here.
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.
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.
