How to Shoot Portrait Shots like a Pro?

Ever wanted to shoot profile pictures cheap nfl jerseys like the ones featured in magazines without having to hire a photographer or study all those complicated camera settings? Well, this was my dream a few years back.

I was so awe-inspired by those portrait shots with a blur (bokeh) in the background that I kept asking friends jordan retro 1 how to achieve that kind of shot. Turns out, shots like that are possible if you have the right set of lens and of course, camera.

<span style="font-family: вселенной helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>Just a few years back, I got myself a Fuji XE-2, which came with a standard kit lens of 18-55mm, which was good for landscape shots. I wanted a bit more flexibility so I added a 35mm 1.4 lens, which primarily was used to shoot portrait photos. This lens is not your typical zoom in, zoom out type of lens, but it’s actually just a fixed, prime lens. Shooting my first few shots, I immediately noticed the difference. Especially, when the aperture is set at 1.4 – 2, the blur (bokeh) increases giving my subject more definition and achieving the shots I’ve envisioned ever since. So for those of you who want to achieve cheap jerseys wholesale that blur in the background without having to adjust so much settings, then just get yourself a camera (any camera) that can be attached with a prime lens (35mm, 55mm, etc.) and has a low aperture setting (preferably 1.8 below) to get that shot you’ve always dreamed of. With my Fuji-XE-2 I just adjust the exposure dial and a bit of ISO that would go with the aperture setting I’ve put in, and trust me, it works wonders.
