Gary, you made my morning with your comments! I’m so glad you found this helpful. It just didn’t click with me when I first started and seemed like it took forever, but now I love it. Using one lens is just, well, boring! If you learn to use multiple lenses and when to use them for a desired effect, your portfolio becomes so much better! Hope you stop by again soon! I’d love to see your work!

Comment on Photography Tips: What Lens Do You Use? | AZ Portrait Photographer by Gary https://magicalmemoriesbymichelle.com/photography-tips-professional-portrait-photographer-mesa-az/#comment-1189 Thu, 11 Jun 2020 11:10:58 +0000 https://www.magicalmemoriesbymichelle.com/?p=20786#comment-1189 Wonderful examples! Lovely warm vibe I get from the way the piece is written too. Friendly tone.

I’m a hobbyist photographer/videographer who has recently gone from prime lenses to zoom lenses and this advice is invaluable. I was falling into the “shoot wide open with ND filter” trap thinking that was the only way to get convincing bokeh but you just proved me wrong Michelle.

What I also really like is seeing someone other than me embrace lens flares, too, and use them to add interest to already great looking shots. This is why I love vintage manual lenses and have several – the flares, the vignetting, the colour fringing. Modern photography lenses are great but I love the artifacts of the older ones, pincushioning and all, leaving 200mm shots uncorrected etc. I think more people should embrace that for a natural, rawer look rather than retouching everything because it looks great.

Love how you spotlight a senior athlete and incorporate comments from a family member in order to really tell who he is, & then take us through the session via wording & killer visual images, as well as giving some small insight into your business!
