Ex 2.4 – Portrait Lens

Find a location with good light for a portrait shot. Place your subject some distance in front of a simple background and select a wide aperture together with a moderately long focal length.

Compressed space between subject and background and strong bokeh. This was taken with a micro 4/3 camera and the lens needed to be wide open to create the shallow depth of field.  A noticeable difference to my APSC cameras.
