Choosing the Ideal Lens for Portrait Photography

Selecting the right lens for portrait photography is a pivotal decision for photographers of all levels. This comprehensive video offers valuable insights into the intricate world of portrait lenses with in-depth exploration of various lens types, from prime lenses to zooms, wide angles to telephotos, making it an invaluable resource for photographers seeking to refine their portrait photography skills.

Coming to you from Julia Trotti, this fantastic video tutorial brings a practical touch to the discussion of portrait lenses by sharing personal experiences and opinions, offering real-world insights that can help photographers make informed decisions. One critical topic addressed in the video is the perpetual dilemma of choosing between achieving the sought-after background blur (bokeh) and the convenience of a zoom lens. This is one of the most important choices a photographer must make regarding portrait lenses.

The ability to choose the right lens can profoundly impact the final outcome of portrait photography, with focal length affecting both your ability to provide environmental context and the way the subject’s facial geometry is rendered and aperture controlling depth of field and subject isolation. The more you understand this, the more you can make informed technical decisions and take more precise control of the creative process. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Trotti.
