When shooting portraits it’s important to take into consideration the focal length of your lens. As Jay P.

If you’re in the market for a new DSLR you’re probably overwhelmed with the wide selection of options currently available on the market. Once you commit to a particular camera, the process of learning how to operate it can also be overwhelming.
Great photographs are often ones that are able to tell a story, ones that portray emotion and action. More often than not, behind every great photograph lays a great story of how it came to be.

To put that number into perspective a bit, the filmmakers said they spent between six to eight hours filming for every three to four seconds of video.
Just because you are shooting a family portrait, it doesn’t mean that you have to subscribe to the same style photographers have been using for decades. As Benjamin Von Wong shows us, it pays to think outside of the box.
