Portrait Photography Tips  Prime Lens Vs Zoom Lens
When it comes to portrait photography, you have to note that a fixed focal length that is good has the tendency to focus way faster as compared to a consumer zoom.
Despite that, wider maximum aperture gives you the ability to shoot in low light without the need to use a flash.
The prime lens I use will vary depending on the subject I am shooting as well as the type of shot I want. When it comes to outdoor portrait photography, I normally use the Canon 85mm f/1.2 prime lens.
This lens is a classic focal length for portraits. With the depth-of-field this lens can provide me, I have the ability to pay attention and focus onto my subjects eyes. This brings about a much more intense and direct contact with my model.
