On the way of learning photography, everyone is constantly correcting their own mistakes. Portrait photography is a subject that every photographer will try. In the process of shooting portraits, there are often some seemingly low-level mistakes. , Most of them are common problems for many novices. Today we will sort them out for you to see if you have made these mistakes.
The focus is not on the model’s eyes

Many film friends have heard that the focus should be on the model’s eyes, but in practice they often forget about it because of negligence. When shooting, we can choose to use the Nikon Z 6 camera. When shooting still images, the Z 6 can use eye detection autofocus, which provides an effective tool for shooting portraits and quick snapshots. In both AF-S mode and AF-C mode, sharp focus can be achieved for shooting people-the eye detection autofocus function can detect the eyes of multiple people, and the multi selector or sub-selector can be used from it Select the eye that needs to be focused to focus. This operation can be performed even when viewing through the electronic viewfinder. After using this function, focus point selection is no longer a problem.
The character has red eyes

This is a common problem among novices. The red eye is caused by the sudden bright light that makes the model’s pupils not have time to shrink when shooting with a flash. , The light hits the capillaries of the retina to form a red reflection. To solve this problem, the method is very simple. We recommend using a long-bright light source for shooting, such as a handheld LED light. This not only ensures that the model will not have red eyes, but also allows the photographer to observe the changes in the light in real time for easy adjustment.
Wide-angle perspective distortion

In order to pursue a strong visual impact, many film friends often choose to break the tradition and use a wide-angle lens to shoot portraits. This is understandable, but there is a common problem , That is, the wide-angle perspective is too strong, which will cause the effect of stretching the picture. Therefore, when shooting, try to avoid using wide-angle lenses. The NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S is called a portrait lens for a reason. , This lens uses the natural blurred background to effectively emphasize the subject by gradually changing the degree of blur from the focal plane. Achieved an impressive depth of field effect.
