Simple editorial portrait today of one of Which? magazines readers, the brief was to take a portrait of John in front of a plain backdrop, this is then cut out and put above the readers profile. As I have started to run through the new Nikon kit since the purchase a couple of weeks ago I used the 105mm macro lens, a lot of people make the mistake of just using these lenses for close ups and still life, they are in fact superb portrait lenses. With the 105mm focal length you are a distance away from the subject and not appearing too intimidating, plus you then have the ability to get some finer detail image if needed. The portrait on the left will be used by the magazine, the image on the right was more for testing the lens, just lit with natural window light and providing great detail and natural skin tones.
