I realized I haven’t posted a good close up portrait in a while.

So today’s tip is to make sure you step down your aperture a few stops when shooting close up portraits to avoid blurred out nose and ears, unless you like that kind of thing, then go ahead. 😉

I like shooting close up portraits at f4 on my 135mm. This insurers that the whole face is tack sharp and in focus.

If you’re shooting a close up portrait with a second person in the shot, you might step down to f5, because believe it or not, f4 is still extremely narrow close up like this on a 135mm. So if your subjects are not exactly parallel with you, one of them could still be a bit out of focus.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because some day in life you will have been all of these.
