Portrait photography in the micro era, your shooting methods should also be upgraded
This article comes from Jiayou Online
The EOS R full-frame micro system is a new camera system developed by Canon for the future. At present, EOS R, EOS RP and several professional lenses have been released. As we all know, in the era of SLR, Canon has always been the first choice for photographers in portrait photography subjects such as wedding dresses, photo studios, and business. Now in the mirrorless era, the EOS R system has removed the reflector in traditional SLR cameras, adopted a shorter flange distance RF mount and faster and easier-to-use full-pixel dual-core CMOS autofocus. In the field of portrait photography, in fact, It is a more attractive and competitive product. Today we will talk about the advantages and functions of the Canon EOS R system in the field of portrait photography and the corresponding body setting methods.
High image quality in the new era

The RF mount of the brand new EOS R full-frame micro-system follows the design of 54mm large diameter and 20mm short flange distance. Therefore, compared to the SLR system, the EOS R full-frame The special micro system has a more flexible optical design space, and the designer has a higher degree of freedom, so it is easier to achieve higher lens quality.

It is true from the actual performance. At present, it is suitable for Canon EOS R full-frame micro The system’s RF lenses generally have good sharpness, especially these professional-grade red circle lenses. The resolution and contrast of the picture are very good, and the imaging details at the focus of the picture are extremely solid. At present, such a high-level lens still has a lot of margin performance even if it is to deal with future fuselage upgrades.
A large aperture that can be opened arbitrarily

The shallow depth of field blur effect obtained by shooting with large aperture is every one The beauty pursued by portrait photographers, after entering the EOS R era, is also due to the “large bayonet + short flange distance” design adopted by the RF lens. This inherent stereotype has become a thing of the past.

When shooting at full aperture, the new generation of RF professional-grade lens has the image performance, whether it is sharpness or anti-dispersion Still out-of-focus, both have excellent performance, so there is almost no need to consider closing the aperture to get better picture quality. This also makes many photographers who have tried Canon EOS R full-frame micro system + RF red circle lens with emotion: “The new RF micro lens has only one aperture in my hand, that is, it is fully open.”

Easy to use eye detection autofocus system
In actual use, Canon EOS R system There are many useful functions for portrait shooting, the most typical is eye detection autofocus.
Enable eye detection Camera setting interface with autofocus function
Thanks to the full-pixel dual-core CMOS autofocus technology carried by EOS R system cameras, the new generation of Canon full-frame micro-cameras can achieve eye detection autofocus. In use, there is no need to manually adjust the focus point at all, the camera can very automatically and intelligently “track” the model’s eyes.

When using the EOS R full-frame micro-camera to shoot portraits, the photographer only needs to confirm the focus frame status in the viewfinder is blue, and then press Lower the shutter to obtain a large picture with a clear subject and a natural blurred background. For professional photographers, this can reduce the operating steps of the camera and make them more involved in creation; for novice users, it can also lower the threshold for camera use, allowing more people to experience the joy of shooting exquisite portraits.
The portrait photo style that the girl has said is good

has always been ” The urban legend that “Portrait has no brains to choose Canon” is actually not unreasonable: Canon cameras have always had low-contrast, soft-blurred, and pinkish-to-pink styles. Therefore, it is true for portraits, especially those of Asian women. There are indeed great advantages. After all, no girl would dislike the performance of white and pink complexion, and the soft blur effect. Therefore, when using EOS R to shoot portraits, we also recommend using the portrait photo style in the Canon camera to maximize Canon’s skin tone advantage.

thanks to full pixels With the addition of dual-core CMOS autofocus and eye detection autofocus system, when using EOS R full-frame micro-focus for portrait shooting, we can give more focus to the camera, so we also recommend that you try to use Canon more Servo auto focus function in full-frame micro-camera: This function will always keep auto focus as long as we press the shutter halfway. Whether the model is static or dynamic, we can press the shutter to capture the wonderful moment at any time.

New For portrait photography of the times, I also choose EOS R full-frame micro

Although the release time is not long, but at present, Canon EOS R full-frame micro system Its “basic disk”, that is, the field of portrait shooting, has many advantages: excellent image quality, wide-open wide-aperture lens, easy-to-use eye detection autofocus, and traditional “metaphysics” skin tones. Let EOS R, EOS RP and the upcoming EOS R5 have strong fundamental advantages in their respective positioning segments. With the advancement of technology, a more simple and easy-to-use full-frame special micro-camera allows us to avoid too much consideration in all aspects, and it is simpler and more natural to focus on real shooting. In my opinion, this is the full-frame The biggest advantage of special micro system when shooting portraits.
