That certainly was the case with Marina, this shepherd girl who I came across on the misty Pampasmojo at dawn. Really love the first shot, beautiful warmth and there is in innocence in the girls face you have captured nicely. David, This article just make me want to go buy that new Nikon 24 f1.4, but that will have to wait.
Start tracking your subject well before you are ready to snap so youa€™ll be prepped when the right moment comes!
When using a lens with IS while on a tripod, always remember to turn IS off to prevent blur.

Canon UBUPrints is a service that encourages individuality and the freedom to express who you are. With travel portraiture the background can make or break a shot; too much confusing detail will distract attention from the main subject. Still in Peru this shot of a lady in the market at Chincherro was shot with my 24-70mm at 70mm, still wide open at f2.8.


I’d love to go to Peru some time and capture that interesting culture and see Machu Picchu. Give your space the look and feel that speaks to your character and defines your personality.
Generally speaking a medium telephoto is the lens of choice for portraiture, enabling a pleasing perspective from a convenient distance for a full frame head shot with the background dropped out of focus.
The splash of colour of the out of focus lady in the background gives some sense of the setting, but my chirpy subject full of the joys of life is still dominant in the frame. So still with the 24-70mm but at 50mm this time I shot again wide open, but the lonely mountain side setting is a much more significant element in the frame, as is the cool sombre sky.
There is a time and a place for isolating the subject from their surroundings, equally injecting a sense of place can be very effective. Back in Laos the sun is coming up and I’ve parked my Big Bike with an embarrassing basket over the front wheel by a ford near a village. The people out in the countryside still wear the colourful native dress so synomonous with the Andes and like Laos there are few hassles about exposing them to pixels. It was a location I shot as a landscape the previous dawn, but the light was so hazy it didn’t really work. In the square in Pisac in the Sacred Valley of the Incas sat this wizened, distinguished lady.


I did however note just what a thoroughfare it was for passing peasants, so here I am, hanging around shiftily, waiting for Something to Happen.
Fill the frame, shoot wide open, be bold with the composition and sweep your eye from corner to corner of the frame.
Neither are multiple exposures, as I’m working hand held here with a rapidly evolving opportunity. The backdrop of mountains and river is quintessentially Lao, a perfect setting for some environmental portraits. Luckily two factors come to my aid; the low contrast nature of the light and the exposure latitude of the RAW image. It’s a tried and tested approach that works everytime, and the elements that make the shot are the subjects face, the interaction between photographer and of course the lighting.
I managed to expose ensuring the highlights in the sky were retained and the balance between her face and the heavens was balanced with multiple RAW conversions of the same frame and a bit of buggering about in Photoshop with layers and the eraser tool. That bustling market behind is all part of the scene; so how to use that in the shot without distracting from the foreground is the challenge.
