Please can you tell me how you get your images so sharp and also how you get the eyes in your photos to stand out as well as they do.
I use L series lenses, I'm addicted to them. But the main way I get sharp photos is the toggle the focus point to the eye area, have my lighting spot on & have my shutter speed spot on,good focus is to do with your camera's settings, a typical outdoor portrait type shot for me would go somthing like this - depending on the light of course - iso 200 f/2.8 1/250 sec - I always aim to shoot aboove 1/160s
Eyes : Great focus & catch lights to begin with help, alot of the time I don't need to PP the eyes, but if I do, it's usually only a small amount of dodging in photoshop of the eye whites & catchlights.
To get good catchlights, have the light coming in from behind & slighly above you & onto your subject, a good way to determine good light is to look at the person's eyes & face. If you see good even light without sun blinding them, then you're good to go, you then meter from there.
Thank you for this! I am portuguese, so can you tell me what do you mean with "fine tune"?
What is your favorite lens that you use most of the time?
Fine tune - is to to make small adjustments for optimal quality.
After having my 24-70 2.8L calibrated, I find it had to choose between that & the 85 1.2L
They sit fairly equal at the monent, they are both awesome lenses for different reasons, and all the reasons they are awesome are needed by me.
for the work I do, i don't think I need any other lens - perhaps the 50 1.2L one day there's always room for more L glass !
