“Why do you take me so ugly!” “Look at how good my boyfriend took pictures!” “Picture me better!”…Do you guys often face this? Torture of the soul. Christmas is coming soon, this kind of romantic holiday is naturally indispensable for taking pictures for your girlfriend. In order to let everyone no longer be disgusted by their girlfriends this year, I will come to talk with you today, how to make girls look better!
What kind of equipment to use
Although you can also use your mobile phone to shoot for your girlfriend, believe me the effect is not good, especially when the light is not good The effect is worse. Love her and give her the best. Full-frame mirrorless + large aperture lens is the correct way to open portraits. Here we recommend full-frame mirrorless EOS R and RF 50mm F1.2 USM lenses. EOS R is equipped with a full-frame sensor, which can bring better picture quality and show better skin tone restoration. At the same time, the full-pixel dual-core focusing technology also has face recognition and eye-controlled focusing functions, giving her a more accurate and faster focus when taking pictures.
RF 50mm F1.2 USM lens The F1.2 large aperture will bring us an excellent background bokeh effect. At the same time, the combination of spherical lenses and ultra-low dispersion lenses, as well as ASC coating, will provide us with higher picture quality, eliminate various aberrations and suppress glare and ghosting.
large aperture brings perfect blur
aperture: F1.2 shutter: 1/ Sensitivity in 400 seconds: ISO 100 Exposure compensation: 0.3EV
The aperture priority mode is generally used to shoot portrait photos. In order to highlight the subject’s blur background, it is natural to use the maximum aperture of the lens to shoot, specifically to RF 50mm F1.2 With this USM lens, F1.2 aperture can get a better blur effect and filter out the cluttered background to highlight the subject. Large apertures in low light environments can also make photos sharper.
If the shooting ambient light conditions are good, use the central average metering mode. If the light conditions are not very good, such as the light is relatively large, in order to ensure accurate exposure of the face of the person, a more accurate spot metering mode is required. In addition, he is good at using exposure compensation and appropriately increasing the exposure in low-light environments to make the overall picture brighter.
shoot with light to avoid strong light
Aperture: F1.2 Shutter: 1/125 Sensitivity in seconds: ISO 100 Exposure compensation: +0.3EV
It is best to shoot portraits in light, because backlighting and metering may cause the subject’s dark or yin-yang face. In addition, it is also necessary to avoid direct glare of the subject, which will distort the skin color, and also make her squint her eyes and cause unnatural facial expressions. When shooting outdoors, cloudy days are more suitable for shooting portrait subjects than sunny days, and morning and evening are more suitable for shooting than noon. When shooting indoors, you should also pay attention to the effect of different color temperature artificial light sources on the skin color, the more natural the better.
The eyes are the window of the soul

aperture: F1.2 shutter: 1/60 second sensitivity: ISO 200 exposure compensation: +0.3EV
Canon EOS R can enable eye detection autofocus in face+tracking mode
As the saying goes, the eye is the window of the soul, and it is necessary to treat people in portrait shooting. Focusing on the eyes, Canon EOS R can enable eye detection autofocus in face + tracking mode, which can detect the eyes of the subject. The subject can continue to focus on the eyes during exercise, simplifying the focusing operation and supporting servo autofocus, allowing the photographer to focus on composition and light use when shooting portraits. The RF 50mm F1.2 lens is equipped with a USM ultrasonic motor that focuses faster and quieter, which can lock the focus faster.
Communication during shooting is very important
Aperture: F1.2 Shutter: 1/60 Sensitivity per second: ISO 200 Exposure compensation: +0.3EV
Not everyone has the same strong sense of lens as professional models. On the contrary, most people are a little nervous when facing the camera, even if they are familiar with each other Lovers also appear unnatural when facing the camera. And to eliminate this unnaturalness and tension, communication is an effective method. She doesn’t know what she looks like in the camera, what angle is best, she needs to tidy her hair, these are all as a photographer You need to tell her.
In addition, don’t shoot for the sake of shooting. Learn to discover the most beautiful moments. It is the most natural to inadvertently lift the locked screen. EOS R’s full-pixel dual-core focusing technology has a focusing speed of 0.05 seconds, and with the fastest continuous shooting speed of 8fps, it can help you record the most natural and charming moments of your girlfriend.
Composition is the key to success
Many people are used to putting their girlfriends in the center of the frame when taking pictures of their girlfriends. Although it cannot be said that this composition method is very wrong, but the picture will appear very monolithic. “It’s not about taking ID photos.” This is what many female compatriots often complain about.
Aperture: F1.2 Shutter: 1/80 second Sensitivity: ISO 125 Exposure compensation: +0.3EV
The most common in portrait shooting The composition method is to place the subject on the left or right side of the picture. This composition is more visually comfortable, similar to the white space in a painting. Moreover, the subject is not centered, and other elements that help express the theme and enrich the picture can also be revealed.
Aperture: F1.2 Shutter: 1/60 second Sensitivity: ISO 200 Exposure compensation: +0.3EV
Aperture: F1.2 Shutter: 1/200 second Sensitivity: ISO 100 Exposure Compensation: 0EV
The slightly tilted composition will make the picture more lively. Find some shooting props according to local conditions and let her hold it Holding it can not only relieve the tension of the girlfriend facing the camera, but also make the body posture more natural and avoid being at a loss.
Aperture: F1.2 Shutter: 1/100 second Sensitivity: ISO 100 Exposure compensation: 0EV
Use some things in the foreground to form The frame effect is also a common composition technique in portrait photography. The advantage of this is that the rich picture better highlights her as the subject, and it can also bring a three-dimensional feeling to the photo.
EOS R is equipped with a reversible screen, which makes it more convenient to compose photos for your girlfriend, especially when shooting at high and low angles. This camera can also touch and select the focus area on the screen, allowing you to focus more on the composition when shooting, first composing the picture and then focusing, it is as simple as using a mobile phone to take a picture.
