Have you ever made these mistakes in portrait shooting?

By  Eward Castellanos 2020-02-20 1120 3

On the way to learning photography, everyone is constantly correcting their own mistakes. Portrait photography is a theme that every photographer will try. In the process of shooting portraits, there are often some seemingly low-level mistakes, most of which are common problems for many beginners. Today, we will sort them out for you to see if you have made any of these mistakes.

The focus is not on the model's eyes.

Nikon Z 6.

Many moviegoers have heard of focusing on the model's eyes, but in practice they often forget it because of carelessness. When shooting, we can choose to use Nikon Z6 camera, and Z6 can use eye detection autofocus when shooting still images. (AF), provides an effective tool for portrait shooting and fast snapping. Clear focus can be achieved in both AF-S mode (single autofocus AF) and AF-C mode (continuous autofocus AF)-the eyes of multiple character objects can be detected using the eye detection autofocus (AF) function, and the eyes that need to be focused can be selected from them using a multiple selector or sub-selector, even through an electronic viewfinder. After using this feature, the choice of focus is no longer a problem.

The character has red eyes.

This is a common problem for beginners. The red eye is caused by the sudden bright light that prevents the model's pupils from contracting when shooting with a flash, and the light shines on the capillaries of the retina to form a red reflex. To solve this problem, the solution is very simple. We recommend using a long light source, such as a hand-held LED light, to ensure that the model will not have a red eye, and at the same time allows the photographer to observe the changes of light in real time, which is easy to adjust.

Wide-angle perspective deformation.

In order to pursue a strong visual impact, many moviegoers often choose to break with tradition and use a wide-angle lens to shoot portraits, which is understandable, but there is a common problem, that is, the wide-angle perspective is too strong, which will cause the picture to stretch, so when shooting, try to avoid using wide-angle lenses. Nicole Z 85mm fhand 1.8 S is called a portrait mirror for a reason. By gradually changing the virtual degree from the focal plane, this lens uses the natural virtual background to effectively emphasize the subject. An impressive depth of field effect has been achieved.
