Putting lenses in perspective – Dorset Portrait Photographer

As a Portrait photographer the lens choice can make the difference between a flattering portrait and a non-flattering portrait. The lens choice effects how the final images look. This is something I also cover on my one 2 one workshops and it’s always worth knowing.

Here’s a sequence of images to illustrate this point.

Starting at 24mm going up to 135mm… with similar framing and shot at f/2.8.

    Lawrence - A very interesting (and useful) comparison.
    I had a discussion with friends at dinner recently where the participants were overwhelmingly of the opinion that true “portrait” photography contained head and shoulders only!
    Hard to believe but there you have it.
    Be interested to know which focal distance you prefer on the examples given here.
