When shooting full body portraits, lens choices go hand in hand with the camera angle.

Camera angle denotes what angle you shoot from. There is nothing that prevents you from experimenting with your camera angle as well as the actual focal length you shoot with.

Always experiment and figure what works best for you. As a general guide use these following tips:


 

  • Don’t shoot with a wide angle lens from too close.
     

  • Don’t shoot down with a wide angle lens from a close angle. You are going to shorten the legs of the model and extend the upper body. Also, we have explained how it can make the head look weird. That is never a great thing.

 

  • Shooting from about waist level is a better angle. However at the same time, it is also a clichéd and boring way to shoot.

 

  • Try shooting from a low camera angle. Just so that you can see what difference does it make. Usually, when you shoot from a low angle the legs get longer and the upper body gets compressed (and therefore shorter).



Maximum Aperture of the Lens:

Another thing to note when selecting a portrait lens is the maximum aperture. A wide maximum aperture will blur the background of the subject and isolate the subject. Most portrait photos with this creative effect look really pleasing to the eye.

However, this is not etched in stone. You are encouraged to shoot with a small aperture as well. Try to incorporate the surrounding if it’s nice and is likely to add something interesting to the image.
