    Common Photography Questions From Beginners, 8-9

    Common photography questions: what is a good lens for portraits?

    08 What’s a good lens for indoor portraits?

    Using a fast prime lens is ideal for indoor people photography, as the inevitable lack of light means you’ll need a really wide aperture to let a lot of daylight reach your camera’s sensor.

    Using 50mm primes with really wide (or fast) maximum apertures has the benefit of capturing a really shallow depth of field for artistically blurring anything other than the focal point: in a close-up portrait, focus on the eyes (or closest eye), and much of rest of the face and background will be knocked totally out of focus.

    A fast lens also enables you to achieve a suitable shutter speed for sharp shots when shooting without a tripod, even in low light, plus you won’t need to resort to using flash, which can often overpower and ruin any atmospheric light.

     

    Common photography questions: what is a good lens for garden close-ups?

    09 What’s a good lens for garden close-ups?

    You’ll need a macro lens. But beware: many zoom lenses with ‘macro’ in the title aren’t really macro at all. A dedicated macro lens will enable you to take 1:1 life-size close-ups – allowing you to focus on tiny objects, such as flowers and insects, that will fill your frame.
