People easily become the number one object for photos. From party photos to photos of children to photos of family members travelling in front of famous monuments, millions and millions of people take photos every year.

Portrait photography is a little different from ordinary people's photography. The purpose of portrait photography is to capture and show something of a person's "essence"; to say something about their character, personality or life.

The most important things to get right in portrait photography are your camera settings, lighting, and connection to your model.

Camera settings for portrait photography

Because a portrait includes a person's face (or, if the frame is wider, the head and shoulders), classic portrait photography settings tend to remove anything that distracts from the background of the photo. This mimics the effect of looking at a person's face up close and "bringing out" the subject (this is what photographers call it "stand out and draw attention").

To get an uninterrupted portrait photo, use a large aperture, often as wide as possible (f/2.8 or f/4 are popular solutions). A wide aperture creates a shallow depth of field that removes anything that is far from the best plane of focus – namely the background – as a soft blur.

Apart from the large aperture, the only other important setting is ISO. This should be the lowest possible value (eg ISO 100), because a higher ISO causes digital noise, which is very ugly in portraits.
