Portrait photography

Portrait photography is the type of photography where the photographer clicks a person or a group of individuals, where their personality is brought out in photography. It is usually clicked vertically

In my previous blog Nikon vs. Canon: Which one is better? I have discussed how, from my point of view, Canon has the best DSLR collection for portrait photography.

Out of this collection, Canon EOS 5DSr is one of the best DSLR for this branch of photography. With a 50.6MP sensor and a 3.2-inch display, it can take detailed shots up to ISO3200 which is quite difficult in case of other cameras where the picture starts turning grainy after ISO1000. The recommendation for the lens is Canon EF 85mm F/1.8 USM with a moderate sharpness and ultrasonic autofocus motor.
