Portrait Photography: How to shoot people like a pro.Part 2

Which aperture (f-stop) to use?
What makes portrait photography very interesting is that a lot of decisions are to be made (like which lens to use, what focal length to use, and what aperture gives the sharpest) so you can focus on the harder parts of portrait and you can ensure that good amount of light that will capture the personality of the subject.

Now that you already have the idea what type of lens to use from my previous post, now its time to decide what aperture is best and gives the sharpest. Believe it or not, there is a special aperture that works best for portrait photography. Set the aperture opening to f/11 and you will be amazed of the sharpness and the depth on the face which portraiture is really all about.

You may also set your camera to aperture priority mode and choose the f/11 aperture.

We want pictures of us which hide our wrinkles, pouches or stains and many other faults which surge with age. I remember my late husband saying that he used a nylon stocking over his lens to make a portrait come out softer and more alluring. Just figure...

you are absolutely right, soft lens are preferred by many for portraiture to hide blemishes and other disparity and irregularities that my be seen from a very sharp lens.
