try using the 50mm at f/2.8, it's a little bit complicated to keep focus on your subject, but if you focus the eyes, the rest of her face will look really smooth. Plus, you'll seriously be impressed with the image quality
Yes i was using that one The other portrait [link] was done with the 50mm lens, which is ofcourse an uber-lens for portrait photography Thanks for the tips but.. it's not quite clear to me what's wrong with this one?
Btw, focussing isn't that hard, just set your camera to AF Servo, and it wil stay focussed even when the subject is moving.
nothing wrong, actually. I'm just telling that you should practice more with the 50mm I like using the 70-300 for portraits too, but I think the 50mm has a better feeling
You mistook me... I meant that at f/2.8 getting an overall focus is harder than at f/8.0 or f/11, also harder than using the 70-300mm... Getting the hold out of it is a little bit hard at the beginning
Ahhh alright, i mistook you indeed! It would be good to practice with it a lot, focussing is tricky and just the fact that you can't zoom is a challenge! But i think i can manage, using manual focus points and servo autofocus, the only problem is the framing!
That's why i've been using the 70-300 too, it's way easier to get the composition you want! But you can definitely see difference in quality and DOF!
