If you cropped these both you'd have your basic police mug shot.

I think you're too far from the subject in both. The house in the background in picture two is distracting. Lighting looks ok....maybe work on posing. He looks very nervous and stiff in both and the straight on camera position isn't flattering to anyone.

I'd suggest if this is a fist attempt at portraiture to concentrate on just that. You say this is also the first time you've used a fully manual lens so now you have to concentrate on all of the things that go into making a good portrait and filly farting around with making this lens do what you want. You're creating handicaps where you really don't need to.

Look at some posing ideas here and online and keep experimenting.

thanks for the feedback! I agree on all points. Lots to learn and I definitely tried to bite off more than I could handle.

When I go out again, I will use my 50mm instead so I can focus on composition and try and give my model a bit of direction.

If it was perfect right off the bat, it'd take the fun out of learning!  :p

Next time, if you have 3 rows of people, and you are that close to them, then think about F5.6 as a starting point and then move things around from there depending on the available light

- you shot with a 5D3 at | 1/80 | f/2.2 | ISO 400

- here are some other choices for 'similar' exposure:
1/100, F4, ISO 1600
1/125, F4, ISO 2000
1/160, F4, ISO 2500

or
1/100, F4.5, ISO 2000
1/125, F4.5, ISO 2500
1/100, F5, ISO 2500
1/125, F5, ISO 2500
1/160, F5, ISO 3200

or
1/80, F5.6, ISO 2500

For that long FL handheld with a 5D3 and 3 rows of people, I like the sweet spot of 1/125, F4.5, ISO 2500
- the 1/125 vs 1/80th you used would help alot with blurr
- F4.5 for sure would have had the young lady in the first row tack sharp (assuming similar focus point on the 2nd row girl), and the combo of higher SS and F4.5 vs F2.2 would have made a substantial improvement in sharpness for the young lady in the 3rd row
- ISO 2500 is sort of the last decent ISO in the 5D3 before colours really deteriorate

Thank you for your invaluable advice. Although I love to shoot using these fast primes, they always result in too shallow DOF.

I thought this was a thread for prime lens portraits? Isn't there a dedicated thread for people soliciting CC?

You read my mind.

Butch, do you ever get bored of this type of work? When I first starting looking at your posts, I was thinking wow, awesome job, but now I'm thinking it is like shooting pro hockey players. You don't really get any interaction with your subjects or any control over your shots. You could hand the camera to your wife with the settings all ready to go and let her click away...no?
